Ernest Borgnine, RIP -- July 8, 2012

I was to learn that Ernest Borgnine has died.  In interviews, he always sounded like a wonderful grandfather or uncle.  In movies, he often played murderous villains.  I first remember seeing him in reruns of McHale's Navy.  Then I saw him in Emperor of the North Pole.  Then The Dirty Dozen, then Marty, then Bad Day at Black Rock.  I was confused about him, but I always knew he was a good actor, who wasn't afraid to open the throttle. 

The poster for Emperor of the North Pole is from the wonderful site LucyWho:
