I had the honor of briefly meeting and photographing Ernest Borgnine last year.  He struck me as a sweet and gentle man.  As a child I knew him from Disney's The Black Hole, and as an adult I marveled at his iconic performance as the lovable loser in Marty. Watching the film last year I was amazed at his naturalistic performance as a real New York character.  He hardly seemed to be acting, but instead inhabiting this guy from the Bronx who was looking for love.

Ernest Borgnine was one of the greats.
