I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since it won the Best picture Academy award back in 1955, I was quite eager to check it out. After watching the damned thing, the first thing I thought was how interesting it was that such a small and low key feature would actually win the Best picture Academy award.

Marty (Ernest Borgnine) is a 34-year-old butcher whose Italian family is constantly after him to get married. He meets plain-looking schoolteacher Clara (Betsy Blair). They are both lonely, unglamorous people who have resigned themselves to their unloved lives. But they manage, in time, to grope their way to love.

"January 12th Directed by: Delbert Mann Misery loves company. This is a really powerful story, not something I'd expect to see from a major Hollywood movie from the 50's. I kind of didn't think that generation was capable of not believing they were the shit and had the right to take whatever they want. But you see that in the people around the titular character, strangely ahead of it's time, this movie. It's almost like a 2000's indie romance, but without much care put into cinematography... Al"
