Product Description

"I've been looking for a girl every Saturday night of my life," says Marty Piletti (Ernest Borgnine, The Wild Bunch). Yet, despite all his efforts, this 34-year old Bronx butcher remains as shy and uncomfortable around women today as on the day he was born. So when he meets Clara (Betsy Blair), a lonely schoolteacher who's just as smitten with him as he is with her, Marty's on top of the world. But not everyone around him shares his joy.

Winner of 4 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Director (Delbert Mann, Separate Tables), Best Actor (Borgnine) and Best Screenplay (Paddy Chayefsky, Network).

3.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for the Film, One for the Blu-Ray Aug. 2 2014
By Terry Knapp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I can't believe that such an iconic 1950's film has been given such a low-rent Blu-Ray treatment. I could almost live with the fact that there are no special features but, on top of everything else, during Marty's dinner-table conversation with his mother, the film sudden pops out of focus! This is unforgivably sloppy. This film screams out for a Criterion edition!

Very poor copy for Kino also it is in 1:33 not 1:85 as listed - at least the missing scene from the MGM dvd is on this copy

1.0 out of 5 stars Great movie...HORRIBLE blu-ray Aug. 2 2014
By Collodi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this movie and waited for a long time before it was finally released on Blu-ray and honestly, I am so disappointed in the quality of this release. I'm not one to easily complain, but c'mon this Blu-ray is ridiculous! I own the DVD of "Marty" that has been available for years now, but this new Blu-ray doesn't have ANY features, not even basic closed captions/subtitles. I know Blu-ray offers optimal picture quality and with a black and white film it's not as easy to recognize the boost in picture quality, but I thought it would at least include commentary, a feature about the film, or something for a film that won 4 Oscars, including Best Picture. Okay, so I have a bias and I rushed to pre-order, but this release is such a letdown. So, if you don't expect more than better picture quality from this release, order ahead, if not, skip it. As Ang would say, "it's a dog".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Simple, Great, Timeless Movie July 25 2014
By jpop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A simple movie that stands the test of time. Originally this was a "Philco Television Playhouse" story that starred Rod Steiger and Nancy Marchand. With only a few changes, producer Burt Lancaster made it into a blockbuster movie while maintaining its simple tone and its emphasis on characterizations. The script by Paddy Chayefsky stands out with its realistic dialogue and its strong characters. The secret to its success is that the viewer genuinely cares what happens to these people. There are strong performances from everyone including Ernest Borgnine, Betsy Blair, Joe Mantell and Frank Sutton in particular. I have watched it several times and it never loses its punch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great film, bad disc Sept. 3 2014
By Jeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Great film, bad disc. This is lazy work by MGM and Kino. The transfer seems ancient (8-10 years maybe?) and obviously predates Blu-ray ubiquity. The 35mm element appears to have been significantly zoomed during the telecine process, then misframed at 1.33.
