A powerful presence in Hollywood movies, Borgnine won his greatest acclaim – and a BAFTA – for an atypically gentle role as Marty (1955).

He was an effective heavy in From Here To Eternity (1953,) with other movies including The Dirty Dozen (1967), The Wild Bunch (1969) and The Poseidon Adventure (1972).
