Terry has family ties with the mob; Charlie (member of the mob) is his brother and Johnny (leader of mob) treated Terry like he was his own son from a young age. Because of this, Terry feels like he has to be loyal to the mob and that he must do what they ask him to do. In the bar scene after Joey’s death, Johnny is treating him as if he’s family; Kazan demonstrates this by having Johnny leaning on Terry and ‘play fighting’ with him. However in this scene, Kazan also shows the power Johnny has over Terry by using low angle shots, which make Johnny seem bigger than Terry. In this scene, Johnny also puts some money into Terry’s shirt, Johnny does this in such a way which shows that he has power over Terry and that Terry needs to remember that.
This scene is a turning point because Terry makes up his mind to confront the mob at that moment. Although Terry complains that he “coulda been somebody”, he finally does become someone worthy of our admiration. He does this by confronting his problems, but also through the great acting of Brando which allows the audience to connect with the character. As Charley and Terry are in a cab rolling towards Terry’s death, Charley tries to convince him to take a good job and not say anything about Joey’s murder to stay alive and help the mob. In the past, Terry lost a boxing match that he could have easily won because his brother asked him to.
