    His obituary is at the link. Is it just me, or are a lot of people truly dropping on us right now?

    Among Ernest Borgnine's other notable films were The Vikings, The Dirty Dozen and The Poseidon Adventure. And, although he purported to dislike television, his series, McHale's Navy, was a major success in the United States.

    RIP Ernie.

    He was good. Liked him in 'Airwolf' in the 80's. I guess Kirk Douglas is going to outlive them all.

    OOHHH, how sad when true talent dies. Bill O`Reilly interviewed him the other night, at length, and what a true and good person came through. He talked of all the big names he had worked with and had only very good things to say of them. What a guy. So glad now I saw that interview and many clips of him in starring roles...

    RIP "sweetheart" for that is how you came across to me. And you were laughing all the time. You made me feel so good. :)

    Now that's a real fucking shame.

    He was just in a movie I saw recently, can't remember what it was. Rest in Peace.
