Ernest Borgnine was an award-wnining American film and television actor known for his roles in 'McHale's Navy' and 'Airwolf'.
Acting talent and zest for life
Ernest Borgnine has died at the age of ninety five. His career as a thespian spanned six decades and many genres. His range of hypocritical ability spanned such movies as From Here to Eternity, Marty, Barabbas, and McHale's Navy. Ernest Borgnine also served in the military for many years. A friend of mine who had met him personally said that he was pragmatic unpretentious and a gentleman. Certainly his life is a testament to his strength, extraordinary acting talent and zest for life. The masses adored this gentleman who could act in biblical celluloid as well as television and not to the detriment of either. think I will remember Ernest Borgnine in my own special way. I think it was fitting for Grace Kelly to bestow on him his Oscar as best actor for his role in Marty. For all his diversity in his ability to be an ordinary man Ernest Borgnine was everthing but that. I transfigure Ernest Borgnine therefore into the constellation "Humility" thanking him for having made us weep laugh and reflect...ith such formidable ease. Voyage safely..
