ERNIE: A TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT ERNEST BORGNINE
Double Feature!
EMPEROR OF THE NORTH POLE / THE VIKINGS
Keith Carradine sends regrets that he will not be able to attend as previously announced.
EMPEROR OF THE NORTH POLE
1973, 20th Century Fox, 118 min, Dir: Robert Aldrich

Ernest Borgnine reunites with his "Dirty Dozen" co-star Lee Marvin and director Robert Aldrich for this Depression-era drama. Borgnine is a sadistic railroad conductor determined to keep hobos off of his train; Marvin is an outcast who strives to become a legend by battling and besting Borgnine. Highlighted by a young Keith Carradine as the rascal Cigaret, and a taut script by Christopher Knopf (A COLD NIGHT’S DEATH).


THE VIKINGS
1958, MGM/Park Circus, 116 min, USA, Dir: Richard Fleischer

Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis play warring adventurers locked in a battle for land and the heart (or, more accurately, body) of the gorgeous Janet Leigh in this rousing epic. With an exuberant performance by Ernest Borgnine as the head Viking and stylish direction by the ever reliable Richard Fleischer, this is a fast, funny spectacle not to be missed on the big screen.
