Marty is a 1953 television play first telecast live May 24, 1953, on the Philco Television Playhouse; then made into an Oscar-winning film.

The Mother is a critically acclaimed episode of a TV anthology series from the 1950s. Played out in park benches in the Bronx, it deals with the struggles faced by worried children and aging parents while addressing issues of race and class.
