    I just watched this one for the first time tonight on AMC. It sounds cliched, but they just don't make 'em like this anymore. The suspense, the acting, the music, and especially MARLON FRICKIN' BRANDO. While his "I coulda been a contenda," was all that and a bag of chips with the dip included at not extra charge, I think Karl Malden's speech at the docks is vastly underrated. Talk about juxtaposition, I also saw Blade 2 today.

    off topic, but were there commercials on this brodcast and was this movie originaly in widescreen, if not, i might get a look since they show the movies almost every night.

    There was just one commercial in the entire movie, right at the middle, not too bad, I needed to go get an easter egg and some water anyway.[​IMG] It was shown in full-frame, but I'm pretty sure it was filmed that way, and the DVD is full-frame too.
