I was going to post a screen shot from Devil's Rain but I changed my mind. Still one of my favorites, though.

There's only one real Ernest Borgnine movie, and it's The Black Hole.

What a grand old man! Marty is definitely worth seeing and he's fun as the cabdriver in Escape from New York. I read his long obit. It seems like he really lived life to the fullest.
