Marty won best picture in 1955. The crazy thing is it was based off a teleplay. These days we here that all Hollywood does is make sequels or movie versions of things that already exist. But honestly they've been doing that since day one.
Marty is ok. Ernest Borgnine is pretty great as "fat, ugly man" Marty who has no luck finding love until he meets Clara, a socially awkward and plain chemistry teacher.
