Just finished watching an inspiring interview with 92 year old movie actor Ernest Borgnine.
He is still active despite his age and for those who are old enough to remember Borgnine was McHale in the 1960’s television hit series McHale’s Navy.
He won an academy award for his role in ‘Marty’, 1956 and he appeared in some of my favourite films; ‘From Here To Eternity’ with Burt Lancaster, ‘Bad Day At Black Rock’ with Spencer Tracy and ‘The Wild Bunch’ with William Holden.
More recently he appeared as the voice for the cartoon character Mermaid Man in Sponge Bob.
In the three clips below Borgnine talks about his career and his life.
I enjoy hearing stories from old time movie stars but what fascinates and inspires me in this interview is Borgnine’s attitude to life.
The interview goes for about two and a half hours and if you perservere and watch them I’m sure you too will be inspired
