A story about this — 4 years ago
Absolutely delightful to watch, more than half a century later. Such great camerawork, you almost forget it is in B&W. The dialog is still crisp, unpredictable. The characters are very well developed, even the minor ones. You can really feel the relationships. Ernest Borgnine plays the lead, Marty, perfectly. I thought the ending was a bit abrupt and a bit of a letdown, but there is so much to enjoy about this film, you simply have to watch it at least once. Definitely Best Picture material.
