News and Notes
Ernest Borgnine portrays Marty, a lonely butcher constantly harangued about his bachelorhood by family and friends. When he finally finds love, everyone disapproves. Instead of taking the advice of discontented husbands and burlesque-show-frequenting friends, Marty follows his heart. It may sound trite, but director Delbert Mann, writer Paddy Chayefsky, and actor Borgnine work skillfully together to produce a truly charming film.
