Ernest Borgnine (Performer) | Playbill

Ernest Borgnine


Unhandsome and stout, Mr. Borgnine was typecast as a film villain for a decade, notably as the sadistic nemesis of Frank Sinatra's character in "From Here to Eternity." But he surprised audiences and critics with his gentle performance as a lonely Bronx butcher in the Paddy Chayevsky-penned 1955 film "Marty." He won an Academy Award for his portrayal. He also won a Golden Globe and awards from the New York Film Critics Circle, the National Board of Review and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
