I didn't know much of his work, but I certainly enjoyed "Marty" for which he won an Oscar.

RIP.

I loved all his films including The Poseidon Adventure. He was such a great actor. RIP, (((Mr. Borgnine))).

RIP to a man who made acting look deceptively simple. Such a range of roles over the years, and :respec: for his service in the Navy during the war.

I agree he was a great actor. One of my favorites of his was The Flight of The Phoenix. And he seemed to be a really nice man, just the impression I always got when he was on a talk show. I never heard anything bad about him.

Another one of my all time favourites has left us. I loved him in just about everything, but as his movies have been mentioned, I think I'll add in his TV work.

He was so good in Airwolf and such a great foil for Jan Michael Vincent's character. I was so delighted to see him pop up on ER for it's final season a couple of years ago and as always, he was excellent.

His most recent movie appearance that I know of, was in the Bruce Willis spy dramedy thriller RED as the Records Keeper of the CIA's super secret files archive. To hear the cast speak about getting to work w/him on the Special Features is just such a lovely thing to watch. The respect they all had for Mr. Borginine just flows off the screen. Especially from Karl Urban and how whenever he had a chance, he'd get Mr. Borginine to tell stories about the films and people he'd worked w/over the years and what a treasure this experience was for Karl.

As taf2002 said, I also never ever heard a bad word about him. Rare these days.

Thanks for both the Memories and your Service Sir. Godspeed!! :(

He had an astonishing, long-lasting career, but I would think that, for kids of my generation in the US in the 1960's, we would remember him best for Quinton McHale in "McHale's Navy".

RIP Mr. Borgnine.

The role that stands out for me is Fatso in From Here to Eternity.

Me too! Me too! I watched it in reruns in the 70s and 80s!

This sure has been a bad year and it's only half over.

McHale's Navy - definitely my fav role of his! He did seem to be a classy guy.

RIP

Nope, mermaid man. Tim Conway is barnacle boy.
