PROP PHOTOGRAPHS FROM "ON THE WATERFRONT"
Six framed black and white photographs depicting boxers, baseball players and horse-riders that were used as set dressing in the club/pool hall owned by Johnny Friendly, the corrupt union boss, as portrayed by Lee J. Cobb; inventory labels from Encore Studios appear on the back of some. Interestingly, these prop photos were also used in "Woman of The Year" (MGM, 1942) and "Tales of Manhattan" (20th Century Fox, 1942).
