Totally a guilty pleasure of mine, but I love BASEketball and I'll always remember Ernest Borgnine's very uncomfortably hilarious rendition of "I'm too Sexy for my shirt".
And of course mermaid man. TO THE MEATLOAF! Awaaaaay!!!

How could I have forgotten McHale's Navy when talking about his TV work? It wasn't one of the classic reruns shown in our area when I was little and I never saw an episode until a few years ago I'm sorry to say, so I'll blame my not mentioning it due to that, but it truly was Classic TV and he shone in it.

Did anyone else back during the Bloopers and Practicial Jokes years remember seeing a clip of the entire cast standing around waiting to shoot a scene, but not realizing the cameras were rolling, decided to do the "Ooooh Ma Ma, Boppa Ooooh Ma Ma" song/thing while killing time? I forget who started it, but before too long the rest of them had not only joined in, but were also doing bouncy in one place dance moves too.

It was too funny for words. :D

Sigh...I'll have to keep an eye on TCM's site for the next few days for when they announce what day their all day tribute to Mr. Borginine will be taking place and what they'll be showing. I'd think From Here To Eternity would be one of the films shown, as it's one of his more well known ones.

For someone who was never a "leading man" type, he had an amazing career. RIP Mr. Borgnine. :(

He brought dignity to whatever he did - comedy or drama.
Very few actors have been able to sustain great careers for such a long time.
Thanks for all the wonderful performances.

Does anyone remember his guest appearance on "Little House on the Prairie"?

Reminder of TCM showings tonight. Marty is being shown at 8pmEST followed by From Here To Eternity. If you're not a Borgnine fan, watch FHTE for the hilarious performance by Burt Lancaster! Sexy guy, but...
