I didn't see a thread for this movie posting yet. I saw it awhile ago and I thought it was really great. Borgnine's performance was spectacular....

In a way, the soundtrack goes perfectly hand in hand with how the two main characters goes hand in hand with their parents and lives.
A simple story rich with universal themes, sensitive Oscar-winning direction by Delbert Mann, and an Oscar-winning lead performance by one of our most reliable character actors combine to make Marty, the surprise hit of 1955 that became one of the few "little" movies that actually won the Oscar for Best Picture.
