RIP Ernest Borgnine, 1917-2012

Posted by Max Lalanne on July 8, 2012

Ernest Borgnine, who won an Oscar for his starring turn in 1955’s “Marty” and notably beat up Frank Sinatra’s character in 1953’s “From Here to Eternity,” passed away this Sunday at age 95, after a long and fruitful career which included roles in classics such as 1969’s “The Wild Bunch.” He also successfully dabbled in television, starring in the popular 1960s sitcom “McHale’s Navy” and getting an Emmy nod in 2009 for his two-episode turn in “ER.”

Borgnine was also the oldest living Best Actor Oscar winner. May he rest in peace.
