Terry Malloy is a washed-up ex-prize fighter corrupted along with brother Charley at an early age by a ruthless Mob-connected union boss named Johnny Friendly, who runs the waterfront. Malloy is now an errand-boy for the union, while Charley (in return for a college education) is now a lawyer for them. Malloy assists in the killing of a longshoreman who was talking to the crime commission investigating the union. He soon meets the dead man's agonized sister, Edie Doyle, and has a change of mind. Activist priest Father Barry argues with Malloy about morality, responsibility, and doing the right thing. Malloy's guilt, his romantic feelings for Edie, and an assault on Father Barry overwhelm him and he turns informer. Malloy's defiant testimony before the commission leads to a climactic bloody battle that wrests the union from the boss' tenacious grasp

The disenchanted by Budd Schulberg( Book )

69 editions published between 1928 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered by some to be Budd Schulberg?s masterpiece, The Disenchanted tells the tragic story of Manley Halliday, a fabulously successful writer during the 1920s?a golden figure in a golden age?who by the late 1930s is forgotten by the literary establishment, living in Hollywood and writing for the film industry. Halliday is hired to work on a screenplay with a young writer in his twenties named Shep, who is desperate for success and idolizes Halliday. The two are sent to New York City, where a few drinks on the plane begin an epic disintegration on the part of Halliday due to the forces of alcoholism he is heroically fighting against and the powerful draw of memory and happier times. Based in part on a real-life and ill-fated writing assignment between the author and F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1939, Schulberg?s novel is at its heart a masterful depiction of Manley Halliday?at times bitter, at others sympathetic and utterly sorrowful?and The Disenchanted stands as one of the most compelling and emotional evocations of generational disillusionment and fallen American stardom

The harder they fall : a novel by Budd Schulberg( Book )

80 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Budd Schulberg's celebrated novel of the prize ring has lost none of its power since its first publication almost fifty years ago. Crowded with unforgettable characters, it is a relentless expose of the fight racket. A modern Samson in the form of a simple Argentine peasant is ballyhooed by an unscrupulous fight promoter and his press agent - and then betrayed and destroyed by connivers. Mr. Schulberg creates a wonderfully authentic atmosphere for this book that many critics hailed as even better than What Makes Sammy Run? The wrongs of the boxing business that the book illuminates are still with us

Twenty dazzling stories by the writer behind On the Waterfront and A Face in the Crowd Despite growing up among Hollywood & rsquo;s most powerful producers and movie stars in the 1920s and & rsquo;30s, Budd Schulberg was always a populist at heart. In this collection of his best short fiction, Schulberg takes readers from the halls of privilege in Los Angeles to smoky dives and dockyard slums in New York. His eye for detail and nose for trouble render characters as vividly as a Weegee photograph. These stories also represent the great clash of people and ideas in mid-century America. The collection includes & ldquo;The Arkansas Traveler, & rdquo; the story Schulberg adapted into the influential, prescient film A Face in the Crowd starring Andy Griffith. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author & rsquo;s estate

On the waterfront by Budd Schulberg( Book )

49 editions published between 1954 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ex-fighter is caught up in the waterfront gangs after the death of his brother.Marlon Brando's famous "I coulda been a contenda" speech is such a warhorse by now that a lot of people probably feel they've seen this picture already, even if they haven't. And many of those who have seen it may have forgotten how flat-out thrilling it is. For all its great dramatic and cinematic qualities, and its fiery social criticism, Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront is also one of the most gripping melodramas of political corruption and individual heroism ever made in the United States, a five-star gut-grabber. Shot on location around the docks of Hoboken, New Jersey, in the mid-1950s, it tells the fact-based story of a longshoreman (Brando's Terry Malloy) who is blackballed and savagely beaten for informing against the mobsters who have taken over his union and sold it out to the bosses. (Karl Malden has a more conventional stalwart-hero role, as an idealistic priest who nurtures Terry's pangs of conscience.) Lee J. Cobb, who created the role of Willy Loman in Death of Salesman under Kazan's direction on Broadway, makes a formidable foe as a greedy union leader

Schulberg goes toe to toe with his lifelong passion in this collection of his greatest writings on boxing?As much as I love boxing, I hate it.? So begins screenwriter, novelist, and journalist Budd Schulberg's collection of essays on the sweet science of bruising, a sport that fueled his literary ambitions and unsettled his conscience from a young age. He gives riveting accounts of classic bouts, such as Rocky Marciano-Archie Moore, Muhammad Ali-George Foreman, and Marvin Hagler-Thomas Hearns. Yet these essays also offer insight into the sport's sociological significance from a man who covered its highlights and corruption-marred lowlights for decades. Sparring with Hemingway stands as the unparalleled history of boxing's place in American culture throughout the twentieth century. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate
Across the Everglades : a play for the screen by Budd Schulberg( Book )

10 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once described as a frontier beyond the frontier, the Everglades in Florida was long a haven for the lawless--a hideout for moonshiners, outlaws and smugglers. Throughout the labyrinth of mangrove keys, there were deadly snakes and alligators, exotic vegetation and trees filled with varicolored plume birds. Against this primeval setting, the motion picture Across the Everglades brings into drmatic focus the war that was waged between the ruthless exterminators of rare bird species and the conservationists of wildlife in the hidden land--in the days when Miami was little more than a frontier town and Miami Beach was a swamp. The full text includes a long Introduction which provides a rich visual image of the dazzling wonders of the Everglades and the castaway life of its unruly inhabitants.--Jacket
