TCM to air Ernest Borgnine marathon

Ernest Borgnine is to be honored by TCM with a 24-hour marathon of some of the recently deceased actor’s finest films.

Beginning at 6 a.m. ET on July 26, the channel will begin with The Catered Affair and run through The Legend Of Lylah Clare, Pay Or Die, Torpedo Run, Ice Station Zebra, The Dirty Dozen, Marty, From Here To Eternity, The Wild Bunch, and Bad Day at Black Rock. There will also be multiple showings of Borgnine’s Private Screenings interview with channel host Robert Osborne, an hour-long episode filmed in 2009.

Must-see movies on the list are Marty, which earned Borgnine the Academy Award for Best Actor, and the lesser-known Pay or Die, one of the actor’s personal favorites.
