Dies at age 95

In Remembrance Ernest Borgnine

Ernest Borgnine dies in LA The actor with a head that looked hard enough to shatter granite, was the veteran star Ernest Borgnine who died yesterday at 95.

The films that I will always remember him for are 'The Dirty Dozen', 'The Wild Bunch', 'The Flight of the Phoenix', 'The Poseidon Adventure' and 'Escape from New York'.

“I don’t care whether a role is 10 minutes long or two hours,” he said in 1973. “And I don’t care whether my name is up there on top, either. Matter of fact, I’d rather have someone else get top billing; then if the picture bombs, he gets the blame, not me.”
