Ernest Borgnine tonight!
FILM: The Aero Theatre’s holding an Ernest Borgnine double feature tonight, and the man behind McHale’s Navy himself will be there to introduce the second film. Up first at 7:30 tonight is Marty with Borgnine as a “blue-collar Bronx butcher who finds love late in life with schoolteacher Betsy Blair.” The film’s followed by the 1956 film The Catered Affair, where he plays a middle-aged New York cabbie scraping for years to save for his own cab. When daughter (Debbie Reynolds) announces that she’ll get married in a simple ceremony, her mother, played by Bette Davis (red flags here!), insists on having a wedding to impress their friends and family. (Now for the curious, IMDB says he's 91.)
