Ernest Borgnine, a truly gentle-man.

BBC

His trademark stocky build, gruff voice and leering grin led him to be frequently cast as the villain.

Borgnine was presented with his Oscar by Grace Kelly in 1955
But he escaped the stereotype in 1955, landing an Oscar-winning lead role as a romantic New York butcher in the low-budget film Marty.

He went on to play character-acting roles in more than 60 films, including The Vikings, The Flight of the Phoenix (1965), The Dirty Dozen (1967), Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch (1969) and "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972).

A good innings, during which he entertained so many, so well.

RIP

RIP Dutch.

Pike, Deke, Freddie, Angel the Gorches awaits in you for a few fingers of red eye and some wonderful reminiscences of those days.

PS KF... have you no sensitivity? Note the title of the thread. Hmmm? Please?

What tribute do you have to pay to Ernie Borgnine? Have you seen any of his films, perhaps?

If you're really curious and desperate to know the secret behind Inchy's 'big one' and how point-scoring can bring you happiness, why not PM him?

Jus' sayin'.

Very sad about Mr Bourbon. Did he own the biscuit factory or was he disinherited that time when he was caught buying the Jammie Dodgers from his corner shop.
