From Hamden, CT., the WWII vet was in so many great movies: FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, VERA CRUZ, THE DIRTY DOZEN, THE WILD BUNCH, POSEIDON ADVENTURE, DEVIL’S RAIN, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK.   Even with that unlikely mug of his, had great range as an actor, winning the Oscar for his lead performance in MARTY in 1955. WE ARE MOVIE GEEKS is sad that he’s gone but happy he had such a long and healthy life. Borgnine was 95.

From The Associated Press:

He was a tubby tough guy with a pug of a mug, as unlikely a big-screen star or a romantic lead as could be imagined.

    Heard a story about Ernie from the artists that worked the caricature stand at the Universal Studios’ grand opening in Orlando in 1990. He was checking out the sample drawings and the artists invited him to sit down for a free sketch. He said he’d love to. Just as he was about to sit his wife stepped up to remind him about a function they had to attend. Ernie thanked the artists and wished them good luck as he left. They said that of all the stars there, he was far and away the nicest! Sail on, McHale!
