MARTY (Theatrical Release USA 1955)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

—classic—does not lose its entertainment value through time because it catches the quintessence of the difficulty of finding one’s life mate. The movie has soul and heart. It does not stint in its exploration of the desire to move from bachelorhood into the marital state. Ernest Borgnine completely earns a WOW! for exploring deeply the nuances of the steps that lead to commitment to a wife and family.
