What Makes Sammy Run br br Everyone of us knows someone who runs He is one of the symp toms of our times from the little man who shoves you out of the way on the street to the go getter who shoves you out of a job in the office to the Fuehrer who shoves you out of the world And all of us have stopped to wonder at some time or another what it is that makes these people tick What makes them run br br This is the question Schulberg has asked himself and the answer is the first novel written with the indignation that only a young writer with talent and ideals could concentrate into a manuscript It is the story of Sammy Glick the man with a positive genius for being a heel who runs through New York s East Side through newspaper ranks and finally through Hollywood leaving in his wake the wrecked careers of his associates for this is his tragedy and his chief characteristic his congenital incapacity for friendship br br An older and more experienced novelist might have tempered his story and in so doing destroyed one of its outstanding qualities Compromise would mar the portrait of Sammy Glick Schulberg has etched it in pure vitriol and dissected his victim with a precision that is almost frightening br br When a fragment of this book appeared as a short story in a national magazine Schulberg was surprised at the number of letters he received from people convinced they knew Sammy Glick s real name But speculation as to his real identity would be utterly fruitless for Sammy is a composite picture of a loud and spectacular minority bitterly resented by the many decent and sincere artists who are trying honestly to realize the measureless potentialities of motion pictures To this group belongs Schulberg himself who has not only worked as a screen writer since his graduation from Dartmouth College in but has spent his life literally in the heart of the motion picture colony In the course of finding out what makes Sammy run an operation in which the reader is spared none of the grue some details Schulberg has poured out everything he has felt about that place The result is a book which the publishers not only believe to be the most honest ever written about Hollywood but a penetrating study of one kind of twentieth century success that is peculiar to no single race of people or walk of life, The complete screenplay directed by Elia Kazan, b Schulberg s acclaimed and bestselling novel based on a classic of American cinema b br br In Budd Schulberg adapted his Academy Award winning screenplay into an exhilarating novel Suspenseful and emotional the novel presents a more complex and perhaps bleaker portrait of ex boxer Terry Malloy s corrupt and stunted world on the docks of Hoboken Narrated by Father Pete Barry the novel shifts focus to the courageous priest who stands up to the Mob as well as his own church in order to redeem the souls of his hardscrabble and unloved constituents br br i On the Waterfront i is a potent retelling of an iconic American story that stands apart as an unforgettable vision of crime politics and class in the twentieth century br br This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never before seen documents from the author s estate, One of the most accomplished novelists and screenwriters of our time What Makes Sammy Run On the Waterfront Budd Schulberg is a master of the art of the short story as he proved in his early collection Some Faces in the Crowd The crowd is the American landscape indelible characters drawn coast to coast from the teeming streets of New York to tables at Hollywood s legendary nightclub Ciro s In these sparkling stories Schulberg brings us vivid restless people haunted by abrupt failure in the wake of rapid success In The Arkansas Traveler he gives us Larry Lonesome Rhodes s down home stories of Riddle Arkansas which later became the stuff of the celebrated movie A Face in the Crowd Schulberg s characters have to take the responsibility for what they do They have to pay moral costs and face defeats New York Times Packed with verisimilitude
