  Marty on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Better with Borgnine
  Eureka Entertainment are to release MARTY, Delbert Mann's unforgettable masterpiece in storytelling, starring Ernest Borgnine and Betsy Blair, in a Dual Format Edition on 30th April 2018.

A beloved classic of American cinema, Delbert Mann's Marty was the first ever recipient of the Palme d'Or at the 1955 Cannes Film Festival, as well as the winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture, one of only two films to ever win both organisations' grand prizes (the second being Billy Wilder's The Lost Weekend).

"I've been looking for a girl every Saturday night of my life," says Marty Piletti (Ernest Borgnine, The Vikings, Violent Saturday). 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, Il Grido), 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 his 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.

Try the exclusive trailer above. As an extra, the original television play starring Rod Steiger is included on the disc.
