Description by OLDIES.com:
Borgnine, winner of 1955's Best Actor Oscar for Marty (like The Catered Affair originally written for TV by Paddy Chayefsky), etches another superb working-class portrait. And Davis, renowned for playing larger-than-life characters, proves masterly at capturing the life-sized intensity of Aggie. Together, they create a gem of "shirtsleeved intimacy and gamy humor" (Time) as real as a shabby Bronx apartment.
- The TV production of this story starred Thelma Ritter in the mother's role, played here by Bette Davis.
