Really sad. I guess he couldn't really live forever.

What a career, though. A great mix of film and TV work. And he was working almost to the very end--he's got a new film coming out this year!



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Did he ever get to his goal of 200 movies?

No, unless his TV work counts.

Gotta rewatch The Wild Bunch sometime. I cried just watching this video. Could someone put on this scene in English?

One of the most memorable faces in Hollywood history.


RIP, Ernie

One of my favorite persons ever. His vitality will live on beyond his 95 year long stay on this planet. I was priviledged to enjoy his presence and creative input and I will never forget him. His opions regarding life, the human condition (and our beloved film making of course) deeply impressed me as did his many powerful and memorable performances, incl. THE WILD BUNCH, my favorite film. I wish we had more people like him, on-screen as well as off-screen.  

R.I.P. Ernie !

Cool Mike! O0

I read his autobiography a year or two ago. He came off as a very sweet, humble fellow, as he usually does. You're quite lucky you got to meet him.

Who remains from the Bunch? Angel is still alive, right?

Saw him at the NFT in 2009 when he held court on stage. "Call me Ernie" he told the visibly star struck interviewer who managed to get in one question before the man was off on a hugely entertaining set of anecdotes, memories and tall tales. Could have listened to him all night. He spent much of his later life just travelling round the US in a luxury camper van "meeting people" as he told it. I always hoped one day to go to America and accidently encounter him in some out of the way truck stop or bar. Would love to have met him like Mike Siegel. What a great guy and what a great body of work. Must admit I spent half that night staring at him like an idiot and thinking over and over again "He was in The Wild Bunch!!!" The gang's final walk to Mapache's compound alone ensures him movie immortality.



According to the imdb Jaime Sanchez is still with us.

Thanks for sharing Titoli.  O0

Borgnine seems to have been one of the few stars to actively seek out fans. I came across this article on his Wikipedia page:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/14/nyregion/14metjournal.html

As I recall his autobiography he got lots of joy from his voiceover work on SpongeBob SquarePants, and that at events he'd get swarmed by kids who recognized him from that show. He was very lucky in that regard, to have several generations of fans. And unlike certain actors, appreciated it.
