Audiences used to seeing Borgnine in more menacing roles in films such as From Here to Eternity and Bad Day at Black Rock warmed to his sympathetic portrayal of the Bronx butcher with low self-esteem.

One of the most amazing portrayals of an average Shmoe you could ever imagine. Ernest Borgnine is lovable, disgusting, creepy and just a great guy.

Paddy Chayevsky's script, adapted from his own TV play, shows his flair for dialogue at its best, and the film manages to be touching, if minor.

It's a warm, human, sometimes sentimental and an enjoyable experience.

Tragicomic and simple, Marty's celebrated status is rightly earned, but it may be a bit to naive and simplistic for today's hard-bitten audiences.

It does have doggy charm and a certain perceptiveness.

Ernest Borgnine can act!?!?!? He was great in this classic tale about a guy who thinks love is unattainable.

A compelling and thoughtful film, its strong performances by Borgnine and Blair alone would make it a must see.

Too self-conscious by half, the film both invites you in and makes you wonder if it's not all a trick.

Ernest Borgning and Betsy Blair are the highlights of this short and unassuming picture about the trials of love and family.
