Ernest Borgnine, 1917-2012

If you can remember this movie, you are at least as old as me.

About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

    How about “The Dirty Dozen”, where Mr. Borgnine played the general supporting the unorthodox unit of soldier-convicts? How about “Airwolf”, that wildly improbable TV series where he played Dominic “DOM” Santini? And obviously, “McHale’s Navy”? Just three of my favourites.
    And since I was in high school when that movie you mentioned came out, I am DEFINITELY older than you, ya dang punk! ;)

    • “The Dirty Dozen” is the only one of these that I have seen.
      I picked the trailer of “Convoy” because I like the Country music in it. I even had the CD with the soundtrack to the movie once.

    Hi Andreas,
    From today on I really believe that you are in Lithuania, since in Germany the Sam Pekinpah movie that you posted is blocked for some copyright reasons. Considering that you might have also left Germany in part to enjoy a more liberal society, I also advise you the following youtube video by the Curly Hair group in Tehran. It is a shame, but the strickt German laws even blocked this amazing piece of free spirit from Iran because there is some copyright issue with the background music (I could watch it in Bulgaria recently, but here in Germany there is only a black screen with a warning).
