Tributes: Ernest Borgnine

Monday, July 09, 2012

The seemingly gruff, gap-toothed Ernest Borgnine won an Oscar for best actor with his portrayal of a lonely Bronx butcher in “Marty.”  But he starred in over 190 film and television roles over a career that spanned six decades – including the rapscallion boat skipper in “McHale’s Navy.”  Borgnine died at the age of 95.  And you can listen to him reminisce about his colorful past when he spoke with guesthost Dean Olsher in August, 2008, for his autobiography, Ernie.
