Four Oscars─Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Screenplay─went to this touching adaptation of Paddy Chayefsky's teleplay. A husky, middle-aged Bronx butcher, brilliantly portrayed by Ernest Borgnine, gets an unexpected chance to escape his lonely lifestyle and domineering mother when he meets a plain schoolteacher at a dance hall. Co-stars Betsy Blair, Joe Mantell, Esther Minciotti; directed by Delbert Mann. 90 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
