What happens when a man can’t do what a man’s gotta do? In 1950 this was a provocative question indeed. Marlon Brando made his screen debut as a World War II veteran paralyzed in the war and now struggling to accept his disability. It is a performance of marvelous sensitivity and physicality. At first a furious rebel against his fate, Brando’s Bud Wilchek keeps his fiancée Ellie (Teresa Wright) at bay for years before allowing her to witness the change in his body. The film strives for a sense of real life, and because of this, supplies no easy outs.
