1000 Words: Hollywood Goes Fishing

Ernest Borgnine (1917-2012) was a famous actor who is probably best known for his work as Quinton Hale (shown below in a publicity still from 1963) in the popular television show McHale’s Navy. A ten year veteran of the U.S. Navy, McHale’s navy made him a household name, but he had already won an Academy Award for Marty in 1955. A versatile actor, he attracted a new legion of fans by voicing the character Mermaid Man in the popular kid’s show Spongebob Squarepants from 1999 through 2012. Here he shows off one of his favorite pastimes on PT-73: fishing.
