Commander McHale still lives!
Here he is today. I always enjoyed Ernest Borgnine in movies and as Cmdr. McHale on TV's "McHale's Navy" (1962-66). In fact, he is likeable actor too, always professional, friendly and gracious. He's turning 91 this week and has an autobiography coming out in August called, "Ernie: An Autobiography." I bet he has all kinds of stories to tell about Hollywood in that bio. I bet he would be fun to talk with. I wish someone would do a good interview with him about his career and experiences in Hollywood for public broadcasting. He is one of the last living greats of the 1950s live TV heydays.
