Live Poll: Dusting Off '50s Celluloid: Which Old Movie Would You Like to See? (Poll Board Recommendations Still Requested)

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls026390507/

Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/dzRIj6qj69A/

This is a "poll board recommendations" poll. I'd really appreciated nominations for this poll.

The poll description is as follows: 
These are movies, released in the 1950s, recommended by poll authors and commentators. Which of these relatively little-known but highly recommended films, all released during the 1950s, would you most like to see (again or for the first time)?

List: 
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls026390507/

Poll:
https://www.imdb.com/poll/dzRIj6qj69A/

It follows the example of this live poll: http://www.imdb.com/poll/MoytA9mUH0M/?ref_=po_fp


Please follow these guidelines:

* Please nominate a film released in the 1950s that you would recommend and that has less than 20,000 votes. 
* If you'd like to suggest a second film, that would be great; in the case that not enough poll boarders contribute a recommendation, I will use second suggestions as well.
* Anyone who has commented at least ten times on either the GS poll discussion pages or the old poll board is invited to recommend a film.
* Please include a brief comment related to why you recommend the film or some little piece of info about the film.

Thank you so much!

If anyone would like to recommend a film or add a descriptive blurb to a movie you already suggested that is on the list, I can still add a few things via a re-push. Thank you.

Great to see Marty (1955) here Ruby! You're right in what you said above - extremely surprising the film isn't more well-known considering it won a couple of Oscars including Best Picture. A simple story of boy meets girl but executed to perfection. One of my favorites from the '50s... such an incredible little gem.

Marty is without a doubt the seminal underdog movie

Totally, just looking at the list of '50s films again... my god. What a decade at the movies that would be! Literally every film churned out became a classic in some way or another. Seems like 100 lifetimes ago... 

Not sure if you meant it but the word "dog" was thrown around quite a bit in the screenplay (referring to Clara and other less-than-desirable girls, at least according to marty's friends). Nice job if you did.

Side note: Never understood why Clara was considered, as they coined her, a 'dog'; her beauty maybe wasn't overt compared to some other women but she had a subtly unique kind of beauty that I always felt the film downplayed too hard.
