    In Demetrius and the Gladiators 1954: I fought ? men - I killed ? men.

    And : "Half of them (gladiators) will live - half of them will die. THEY KNOW IT."

    A great actor.

    I especially liked him as Fatso Judson, the evil stockade sergeant in "From Here to Eternity".

    The Italian actor even made a great Viking as Ragnar. He made a mean stockade Sgt in "Here to Eternity and a goofie PT Boat captain in a sit-com. If anyone deserves it it is Borgnine.

    I have always like Ernest Borgnine. He's one good actor. He can play any part. Comedy, Drama, you name it.

    I just saw him in RED. He played the record keeper at the CIA. Small part but delivered with his usual excellence. I should look so good when I get to be his age.

    Good movie RED. I LMAO. Bruce Willis looks good for a guy in his 60's and he and John Malkovich were great.

    Helen Mirren trotting around with a sniper rifle and Ronnie Cox as her Russian ex-lover. Great well done movie.

    i think heĀ“ll never die.

    yesterday was this "poseidon" movie on tv. That was a blockbuster in the mid 70ths and he was already an old man then.

    i saw him first in "convoy". wow.
