He is alive and over 90 years old. I don't know how long the TV show played.

@edgarblythe,
Waay too long. I think it lasted longer than WWII. The only thing good from that show was Tim Conway.

I always looked forward to his appearances in films. I never watched McHale's Navy. Flight of the Phoenix comes to mind - Many of his characters were a bit dumb, or nuts, or both.

@felliott,
He's alive and well and around 92 years old, he's recently written an autobiography. I'd say he's one of the most well-adjusted happy people on the planet after hearing him in an interview.

Any part he plays you don't see the character, you see Ernest Borgnine.

@edgarblythe,
He definitely was dumb in Mchhale's navy-- loud and bossy.

@dyslexia,
Borgnine won the Best Actor Oscar for Marty that year.

Apropos of exactly nothing, he's also a high-degree Free Mason.

Yes he was born in 1917 and very much alive, what a natural Actor, and played all his parts with his heart and mind, it was a pleasure to meet him .
