Veteran actor and CRN Digital Talk Radio host Larry Manetti will pay tribute to the late award-winning actor Ernest Borgnine with a special show today!
“The P.M. Show with Larry Manetti” will recall the life and many facets of the famed actor who passed away on July 8 at age 95.
“We were close friends who shared a lot over the years so I’m happy to join with our other good friends and listeners in a tribute to Ernie’s life and work,” Manetti said.
Borgnine and Manetti worked together last year in the upcoming film “The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez,” which became Borgnine’s final performance on film.
Among those joining the special tribute program will be actor Robert Wagner, known for the television series “Hart to Hart,” “It Takes a Thief,” and scores of films and television shows, as well as actor Dennis Farina, star of “Law & Order” “Luck,” “Get Shorty” and many other TV shows and films.
Also appearing will be film director Elia Petridis who directed Borgnine in his final film.
The late actor is known for winning the Academy Award for the title role in the film “Marty,” in 1955, but also for his work as the wacky navy officer Quinton McHale in the famed television comedy “McHale’s Navy,” which ran from 1962-1966. His work included scores of television shows and films in a career that spanned over 60 years.
