Editorial Reviews

"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 Marty's joy. And when his friends and family continually find fault with Clara, even Marty begins to question his newfound love - until he discovers, in an extraordinary way, the strength and courage to follow his heart. Winner of 4 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Director (Delbert Mann, Separate Tables), Best Actor (Borgnine) and Best Screenplay (Paddy Chayefsky, Network).

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

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".

Many people have complained about Kino's recent (2014) Blu Ray release of Marty.
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.

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.

Everything about this movie is perfect. The performances, the direction, the screenplay. I'm glad it came out in black and white. Somehow that lends to the perfection. No frills so to distract from a chracter driven story that goes straight to the heart. A must see. A must own.

One of my top ten favorite films of all time; I've written a review previously when I purchased the MGM version of the film; I've heard that this Blu-ray has the four minutes of missing footage, which I hope is true. Just arrived today so I am not sure but will watch soon. Marty is definitely a must own for any film lover's collection! This does indeed contain the uncut version of Marty with the four minutes of previously missing footage!

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.
