Is Ernest Borgnine Jewish?

Ernest Borgnine was not Jewish. He was of Italian descent. Borgnine died July 8, 2012.


  1. How can I contribute a nice profile photo of a great and talented actor on your great web-site? I'm not being sarcastic, I'm being serious...

  2. Jewish or not, EB was a great and extremely loveble guy.

  3. He was under the impression that he WAS Jewish. Perhaps it;'s because his mother was Jewish and, therefore by Jewish religious law, he was Jewish. That may be why he wouldn't marry Ethel Merman until she converted to Judaism

    There ARE Italian Jews. And, as I'm reminded when I look in the mirror, there are also Irish Jews
