"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).

Is the aspect ration right? I don't know. It's like 4:3 or something close to it. You'll have the black bars on the sides of your TV. There's conflicting reports that perhaps the film was shot with a matte in the camera and that what we have in this edition is extra space at the top and bottom of the shot.
To Kino's credit, the film is presented in it's completeness. A scene of Betsy Blair's character with her parents that didn't make it into the previous DVD version is here.
The menu screen is bare bones. The film's cover art is there with the options to play, scene selection, and the trailer.
The packaging is a standard Blu Ray case. Thankfully those awful cardboard snap cases that Kino used on some DVDs, seem to be a thing of the past.
This definitely isn't Criterion Collection, but I don't think it's as bad as many people are saying. If you appreciate this movie, it's a good step up from the DVD, just not the leap you'd hope for.
