Marty script
Marty (1955)
Synopsis: This acclaimed romantic drama follows the life of Marty Piletti (Ernest Borgnine), a stout bachelor butcher who lives with his mother (Esther Minciotti) in the Bronx. Always unlucky in love, Marty reluctantly goes out to a ballroom one night and meets a nice teacher named Clara (Betsy Blair). Though Marty and Clara hit it off, his relatives discourage him from pursuing the relationship, and he must decide between his family's approval or a shot at finding romance.

Mrs. Fusari takes her parcel of meat, but apparently she

feels she still hasn't quite made her point.

MRS. FUSARI

My son Frank, he was married when he

was nineteen years old. Watsa matter

with you?

MARTY:

That's swell, Missus Fusari.

MRS. FUSARI

You should be ashamed of yourself.

She takes her package of meat. Marty gathers up the money on

the counter, turns to the cash register behind him to ring

up the sale. Mrs. Canduso sidles up to the counter.

MRS. CANDUSO

Marty, I want a nice, big fat pullet,

about four pounds. I hear your kid

brother got married last Sunday.

MARTY:

Yeah, it was a very nice affair.

MRS. CANDUSO

Marty, you oughta be ashamed. All

your kid brothers and sisters married

and have children. When you gonna

get married?

NEIGHBORHOOD BAR. LATE AFTERNOON

A TV set on the wall. Mel Allen, smoking a White Owl cigar,

is recapping the baseball game that has just finished as

Marty comes in.
