Pic of the Day: “Rumble on the Docks” revisited

Today’s pic is another shot from Rumble on the Docks (1956), sort of a teenage rock ‘n roll version of On the Waterfront (1954). Timothy is Frank Mangus, the muscle behind waterfront boss Joe Brindo (Michael Granger). Mangus’ preferred method of interaction with any type of furniture is to drape himself over, across or around it.

This is a great and funny role for Tim; he is clearly enjoying himself. Rumble is now officially available on DVD from the Warner Archive series, so snag yourself a copy today!
