TheDailyBeast: Summer 2012's Lost Legends

10 of 13

Ernest Borgnine

(Jan. 24, 1917–July 8, 2012)

To call Ernest Borgnine’s career prolific would still be selling the award-winning actor short. The stocky World War II vet, who died July 8 at age 95, was one of Hollywood’s most unconventional and memorable leading men. He won the Best Actor Oscar for his tender performance as a lonely butcher in 1955’s "Marty." Among his five decades of impressive film credits: "From Here to Eternity," "The Dirty Dozen," "All Quiet on the Western Front," "The Wild Bunch," and "The Poseidon Adventure." His TV career spans the comedy classic "McHale’s Navy" to 2011’s telefilm "Love’s Christmas Journey," with heralded stops on "ER" and "SpongeBob SquarePants" along the way. A pistol, he recently revealed his shocking secret to longevity: “I masturbate a lot.”
