Born Today in 1917: Ernest Borgnine

One of the great character actors of all time.  He won an Oscar for the title role of Marty (1955) and became an instantly recognizable and greatly loved actor.  He's appeared in everything from The Wild Bunch (1969) to Jesus of Nazareth (1977).  I'll always first know him as the journalist Harry Booth from The Black Hole (1979).

  1. One of cinema's unsung greats.
    Solid character actors like Ernest Borgnine are the foundationstone of any good picture.
