Just getting word out on the internet machine that Ernest Borgnine, who I know from McHale's Navy and Ice Station Zebra, passed away today. Having always thought of him as a slightly goofy guy(his role in Basketball is classic), I was totally flabergasted to learn that he won the Best Actor Oscar in 1955.
My wife, of course, drew a connection between Ernest and Andy Griffith, and wondered who The Third is gonna be.
Me? All I can think of is an interview Ernest did a few years ago when he was asked what his secret was:
If that's all it takes to make it 95, I'm there.
