Ernest Borgnine, Oscar-Winning Actor, Is Dead at 95, Spokesman Tells the A.P.
Ernest Borgnine, the rough-hewn actor who seemed destined for tough-guy characters but won an Academy Award for embodying the gentlest of souls, a lonely Bronx butcher, in the 1955 film “Marty,” died Sunday in Los Angeles. He was 95.
The death was confirmed to The Associated Press by his spokesman, Harry Flynn.
Correction: An earlier version of this alert said incorrectly in the body text that Mr. Borgnine was 96 years old, rather than 95.
