Yeah, very sad news indeed, a true legend.
R.I.P. Ernie! I think i’ll go watch Emperor of the North.
I only recently saw him in Poseidon Adventure and The Split.
Bummer. R.I.P, Mr. Borgnine.
At 95 it was only a matter of time but no less sad. Thanks for the great performances. RIP.
Oh man, most recent film of his I watched was Red (2010) - only a small part, though - and he still looked fantastic for his age. Sad news, he was a great actor. R.I.P.
95 is a fine innings but still very sad to hear of his passing. R.I.P Ernie
I saw him in a TV series a while ago, one of those doctors series I occasionally watch with my wife, ER or Grey’s Anatomy, don’t remember which one of the two. It was then that I discovered he was still alive. Hadn’t seen him in a while in a proper movie.
Very sad news. I always liked good old Mr Borgnine…
I might watch Marty tonight in honor of him.
hm, yesterday, i started to watch Red and when i saw his name during credits i said to myself "jeez, is this guy still alive?"
apparently not, but fine synchronicity
R.I.P. Ernest Borgnine, a great actor, very versatile, who appeared in some real classics over the yesras.
