Storyline

Marty Pilletti is a 34 year-old butcher who lives with his mother. His brothers and sisters are all married and his dear mother - along with several other of her friends - is always asking him why he doesn't find a nice girl and get married. The truth is Marty is lonely and would like nothing better. He has very low self-esteem however and admits to his mother that he's ugly and no one wants him. He's tired of going to the Saturday night dance with his buddies and then going home more depressed than he was when the evening started. At one of those dances he meets Clara. They have a great deal in common but Marty will have to overcome peer pressure if he and Clara are to have a relationship. Written by garykmcd

Please help me purchase this film
14 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone asks me, "You wanna order Marty, you wanna order Marty, you wanna order Marty, I wanna order Marty. How do I order Marty (the film

with Rod Steiger)? I bought it years ago on VHS and the tape has worn so terribly that the film is shot. All I wanna do is order the thing on DVD. Any help out there? Personally, I think that Marty with Rod Stieger is without a doubt, one of the most spectacular pieces of art that I have ever seen. The depth of Stieger's emotion transcends any acting performance since the making of film. I have also introduced this film to my friends, who also would like to know how to purchase the 1953 version of Marty with the fabulous Rod Stieger. Please help me find out how to order or purchase this on DVD. Thanks, Biily
