On the other hand, I just heard of a movie that I should have seen years ago. But maybe I wouldn't have appreciated it as much when I was younger. I'm still not a big Ernest Borgnine fan, but this is not his usual role.
Marty is a kind of quiet, slice of life movie depicting a homely man approaching middle age with all the pressures of family on him to get married. All that's fine, although it has a bit of a weak ending. The thing that madet for me are the little incidentals and vignettes. One in particular is Marty's friend looking for him, going into a bar and getting caught up eavesdropping on two women gossiping about a third. It's just a joy to watch everyone involved, producer, director, screen writer, and actors, take a chance on what might appear to be a scene of no consequence that ends up moving the story along in a way, plays commentary, and is just fun to watch.www.imdb.com/title/tt0048356/#movie #movies
