One For The Ages - Ernest Borgnine - One of the last interviews

"No doubt that Mr. Borgnine was one of the greats, a legend in his own time but, as he suggests in this interview, what does that really mean.  In his case it means that he was a consummate actor, who not only had talent and worked a lot, but really loved his art.  He was not just a personality, in which a role was fitted to him, like some of the bigger named stars.

He was what would be considered a "character actor" and embodied the role within that.  In this interview he does not put on airs and seems to be a genuinely happy and fulfilled gentleman who loved life.  In this modern age of pretty-boy and girl emphasis, as opposed to talent, he ranks high above all that.  When his star was snuffed out, part of the Golden Age of films died with him!"
