Borgnine actually isn't a bad-guy in this. He's an Amish farmer whose family is held hostage, along with Mature, by baddies J. Carrol Naish and Lee Marvin. I love this little movie, which I knew long before I read William Heath's novel, which I also loved. I think it's well worth spending a Saturday evening with.
