Ernest Borgnine, “I am delighted to be part of the celebration honoring the career of Ernest Borgnine,” said Curtiss. “Michelle and I are passionate about the arts and cinema in particular. I am a longtime fan of Mr. Borgnine and believe that its recognition by SAG is well deserved.”
Volterra-located in Seattle, Washington and is open for dinner nightly and brunch on weekends, features seasonal Tuscan specialties of internationally acclaimed Chef Don Curtiss, all natural and organic meats and poultry, pasta Housemade and deli, and a Wine Spectator award winning wine list. The 75-seat restaurant also features a patio in warm weather and eating late at night in the bar.
Ernest Borgnine is not a big deal of his birthday, the 94th.
A phone call from a cousin in Italy, which he answers in Italian strong, very well. Birthday present from near and far, very good. But big plans for the evening, at the suggestion of his children? Not at all.
“It’s just an ordinary day. Why make such a fuss? I must go out and get drunk or what? Do you mind if I just stay home? Is exactly what I do,” he said, punctuating his speech with a laugh.
This is not stingy. Belly laughs are frequent during a 45-minute conversation in the home hill of the actor, who will receive the Life Achievement Award at The 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday (TNT and TBS, 8 & / 5 PT). It lights up like Tova, his wife of nearly 40 years, stops to say hello.
Borgnine credits her mother, suggesting that he try to play when he was looking for work after 10 years in the Navy. “She said:” Have you ever thought about becoming an actor? “You always want to make a fool of yourself in front of people. Why not try?”
The Connecticut native talks about a varied career over 60 years, to act at Virginia Barter Theatre and 30 per week, working with Helen Hayes on Broadway, with Gary Cooper and Spencer Tracy in the film and, for many a generation younger, SpongeBob SquarePants on television. He and Frank Sinatra signed their Christmas cards and Fatso Maggio, their respective figures in 1953 for From Here to Eternity, a role in small groups to Borgnine.
This is a snapshot of the history of cinema, when talks about the search for Borgnine Burt Lancaster and his compatriot Jimmy Cagney candidate Grace Kelly announced his name as the winner of best actor Oscar for playing 1955-butcher Marty in solitary.
“Jerry Lewis had bet money my ninety-eight I had won. I went home and took 198 coins and put them in a red sock, and I went there, they all asked I went to Jerry Lewis, “the actor said, pointing to the Oscars on a shelf in the living room.
After initially resisting TV series, ego driven Borgnine in an environment most of the cast does not affect the early 60s. A candy sale child could not identify the actor but he was familiar with James Arness Gunsmoke and Have Gun Will Travel Richard Boone. He persuaded the Navy to appeal inMcHale.
“It’s been a long and successful (career) success in many ways. There were many heartaches and many tears and worry about the job and everything else,” he said. ” But we did and we’re here. “
