Borgnine was really much better as a dramatic actor, I thought, but McHale's Navy was fun to watch, mostly for the physical comedy.
Yes, he won Best Actor for "Marty", well before "McHale's Navy". That role and his award was the subject of the planned wrong answer in the movie "Quiz Show", reenacting the payola scandal on 50's TV game shows.
Despite all of life's bumps and bruises, I'm still committed to making this world better one smile, one laugh at a time, every day!
