The Sticking Place

Elia Kazan and Budd Schulberg’s 1954 film On the Waterfront was one of Mackendrick’s favourite films to use in the classrooms of the California Institute of the Arts. Here for a compilation of Mackendrick’s handouts on the film, which includes a step outline, a character relationship map, and notes on staging and camera coverage of various scenes (including the famous taxi cab sequence).
