Trivia: At 91 minutes, "Marty" is the shortest film ever to win the Best Picture Academy Award.

Continuity mistake: At the Stardust Ballroom, listen to the first song the dance band is playing on the soundtrack. It skips measures and at one point is hastily spliced to begin again so as to continue because more time is needed in the scene. The MGM DVD copy is incomplete because it is missing the scene in which Clara speaks with her parents after her evening with Marty. The scene is present on the CBS/Fox VHS.

Marty Pilletti: Tommy, Tommy, just let me get a couple of minutes, will you? Because I promised Mr. Terry that I would let him know by tomorrow. You and Virginia can fight anytime.
