Ernest Borgnine Dead at 95

     July 8, 2012


Oscar-winning actor Ernest Borgnine has died at the age of 95.  Borgnine starred in over 200 movies and TV shows in a career spanning over sixty years.  He won the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role in the 1955’s Best Picture winner Marty.  He also played the title character in the long-running TV series McHale’s Navy. While Marty was his most-awarded role and McHale’s Navy was his longest-running, Borgnine turned in memorable work in a variety of excellent motion pictures including From Here to Eternity, Johnny Guitar, The Wild Bunch, The Dirty Dozen, and Escape from New York (I would add BASEketball to the list, but it’s a minor role and a personal favorite).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Borgnine died Sunday of renal failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.  Our deepest condolences go out to Mr. Borgnine’s family and friends.
