Actor who won an Oscar for his role as Marty in the 1955 film of the same name had a 60-year career in film and television

Ernest Borgnine, the Italian-American actor who carved out a distinctive screen presence in a range of pugnacious character roles over a 60-year career, has died at the age of 95.

Borgnine won an Oscar for his role as Marty in the 1955 film of the same name, and was a star of the small screen during the 1960s as the scheming Navy officer in the comedy McHale's Navy. In the 80s, he came to the attention of a new generation of TV viewers as Dominic Santini in the hit series Airwolf.

In other roles, particularly during the earlier years of his career, his stocky build and bulldog appearance made him a natural choice to play the classic Hollywood 'heavy' and he was memorable as the sergeant who »

Film News: ‘Marty’ Oscar Winner Ernest Borgnine Dies at 95

8 July 2012 9:51 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – Ernest Borgnine was the movie star who was America’s “every man,” with roles like his Best Actor Oscar winning “Marty” (1955), Quinton McHale in TV’s “McHale’s Navy” (1962), tough guy Fatso Judson in the classic film “From Here to Eternity” (1953) and even as a cartoon voice (Mermaid Man) on “Spongebob Squarepants.” Borgnine died Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 95.

I interviewed Ernest Borgnine twice for HollywoodChicago.com, and his wit, passion and voice was as strong in his 90s as it was sixty years earlier. He told me stories from the sets of “Marty,” “Emperor of the North” (1973) and “September 11” (2002), as if they had happened yesterday, with the same emphasis on the love of life that sustained him in his long career in show business, appearing in unforgettable film and TV roles.

Giada De Laurentiis is a celebrity in her own right, and she feels she owes it in large part to her ancestors in the entertainment world.

The Food Network and Cooking Channel personality is the granddaughter of the late film producer Dino De Laurentiis, whom she says "made something like over 600 movies in 60 years" including "Serpico," "Death Wish" and the Jessica Lange-introducing 1976 remake of "King Kong." And actress Silvana Mangano, who starred in such epics as "Ulysses" and "Barabbas," was her maternal grandmother.

"Honestly, when the show 'Everyday Italian' started, I wanted to shoot it like Grandfather shot movies," De Laurentiis explains to Zap2it, "and really tell a story from beginning to end. The cinematography, the lighting and everything else in that show really set me up for what I have today, and I don't think I would have had that knowledge had I not come »
