Into-The-Dark is sad to report that Ernest Borgnine, Academy Award winning actor of “Marty,” as well as countless television programs and other films (such as John Carpenter’s “Escape from New York”), has passed away. The 95 year old actor suffered kidney failure on Sunday, July 8, as confirmed by his manager to news outlets. As well as being an Oscar winner, Borgnine was nominated three times for the Emmy Award, and was presented with a Lifetime Achievement award by the Screen Actors Guild in 2010. Borgnine’s career spanned many genres, but he will probably be best remembered by horror & genre fans for his portrayal of Cabbie in “Escape from New York.” Into-The-Dark expresses its deepest condolences to Borgnine’s family and friends, as well as his countless fans.
