Guess there's only so much that masturbation can do, huh?

Anyway, RIP to a great actor and a better man. Now I wanna go rewatch Wild Bunch and Dirty Dozen...

Thought this actor died 20 years ago but he kept popping up randomly in movies .... is Red credited as his last movie (he played the Gatekeeper) ?

The guy deserves way more credit than he got. RIP.

Without trying to sound like an oddball, I'll always know him as having an awesome reaction to seeing Officer Speed, still alive, in Super Fuzz.

For someone to remain as active as he has throughout his entire career is remarkable.


A true legend. RIP.

How about Eli Wallach? He was in Ghost Writer and Wall Street in the last few years and also collected an Honorary Oscar. Pretty good for an actor in his 90's.


I hope Kirk Douglas can hang on for a few more years. We have so few acting legends left and it makes me sad.

Love Ernest Borgnine... but I am going to have to go with BASEketball as my favorite of his! The movie remains something that cracks me up all the time, and Borgnine is absolutely hilarious in it.

Sad news.. but in the age of people passing in their 50's to 70's.. 95 is one hell of a run!

Apparently, Ernest died from the hardest stroke of his life. RIP.

Seriously though, he was awesome. Marty, Dutch... and Cabbie!

Oh yeah, a memorable face. I love the film Marty. RIP, however he had a long and successful life so there's no sadness involved. Big up.

Loved him in MARTY, THE WILD BUNCH and THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE as well as cult classics like ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and the original version of WILLARD! He was always great, and I loved how he still attended awards ceremonies in recent years...and spoke in a more coherent manner (without a teleprompter!) than most actors young enough to be his great-grandchildren could ever manage on a sober day!

R.I.P. Big Guy!

Borgnine was the man .From the lonely Marty to tough guy in fllms like From Here to Eternity,Demetrius and the Gladiators,The Vikings,The Dirty Dozen,and The Poseidon Adventure even providing the voice of elderly superhero Mermaid Man on SpongeBob SquarePants and thats truly only naming a few. Borgnine loved to work and loved life

The Wild Bunch is one of my all time favorite movies and he's a big reason for that. Throw in The Dirty Dozen, Marty and guest appearance on "Home Improvement" as well. A great and legendary actor.

RIP

May God Rest his soul.

A legend that will be truly missed.

(I'd pay serious money to find a copy of that made for TV movie where Ernie played Vince Lombardi. He was perfect in the role and it was AWESOME.)
