Brought To Life By Ernest Borgnine: The Dirty Dozen

SUN-TUES. 4/2-4/4 various times. $8.

Known for his wide, gap-toothed grin and indelible screen presence, Ernest Borgnine was one of the movies’ great character actors, deftly portraying reviled villains and endearing fellows for six decades. This month, the Trylon screens five favorites. The Dirty Dozen follows a group of convicted killers on the eve of D-Day, conscripted to go behind enemy lines and take out Nazi officers. Aldrich’s essential “guys on a mission” movie excels partly because of Borgnine’s scene-stealing General Worden. Playing at the Trylon.
