Borsceh was a prolific star of post-war German cinema, usually seen in virtuous or soulful roles.

Borsche reached the peak of his popularity in film and television comedies and dramas of the 1950's and 1960's, though his career was increasingly hampered by his affliction with muscular dystrophy.
Borsche appeared in only one Euro-western playing Pastor Benson in 1964’s Massacre at Marble City”.
