Ernest Borgnine and Anne Francis

The Screen Actors Guild is honoring Ernest Borgnine at its annual awards show this weekend. TCM is getting in on the honoring by showing a night of Borgnine's work. This also includes a re-broadcast of the 2009 Private Screenings interview Borgnine did with Robert Osborne, at 12:15 AM ET. The movies also include Borgnine's Oscar-winning performance in Marty, at 1:15 AM. The first two movies have smaller roles for Borgnine: The Dirty Dozen at 9:30 PM, and this week's TCM Essential, Bad Day At Black Rock at 8:00 PM. That Essential movie deserves a bit more mention because of who else is in the cast: Anne Francis, who died at the beginning of the month.
