Ernest Borgnine was a great character actor. Maybe, we will get lucky this August and TCM will select many of Ernie's films to show on a single day. :)
My favorite films of Ernie's were
1. "Bad Day at Black Rock"- Ernie played the town bully that Spencer Tracy's one arm character beats up. 2. "A Catered Affair" -Ernie played Bette Davis' husband that cannot afford it but gives in to Davis' character wishes to have a more costly wedding for their daughter. 3. "The Poseidon Adventure"- Ernie plays Stella Stevens' loving husband and they have some funny lines in the film.
Great news for the fans of Ernest Borgnine 1917-2012.
