Welcome to Retroville! It's 1955!
The Academy Award winning film for best picture was Marty.

Marty is a lonely butcher being harangued by an Italian mother who wants her son to marry. Marty's response, "Whatever it is women like, I ain't got it," sums up his feelings about love and romance.

One night, Marty meets a schoolteacher with whom he shares common interests and backgrounds. They pursue a relationship despite each one's insecurities and the pressures of the outside world.

This poignant love story is definitely Ernest Borgnine's finest dramatic performance. It is definitely worth seeing!
