    Oh dear! Doesn't seem that long ago since he was doing push ups at the Oscars or some award show.

    Ha! Got it. We'll miss you Curly (wasn't that his character name?)


    I love Jack Palance. Sad day.

    He was great as Curly in City Slickers, but I think his best part was a crazy old coot in Baghdad Cafe.

    RIP Jack!

    He had a great career---Always remembered him in Barabbas(1961), an epic film set in ancient Rome,where he played an evil chariot rider, trying to kill Anthony Quinn in the arena---also memorable in Shane(1953)-- and Attack(1955),with Lee Marvin ,a brutal anti-war film---His unusual face,with those high cheekbones,made him a natural to play heavies--his daughter was in the business too,on TV I think---luckily,she looked nothing like her father,tho---RIP Jack

    Great obit in LA Times today---Like Charles Bronson, Palance grew up in a coal--mining town in Pennsylvania--Palance ,went to college on a football scholarship,dropped out and become a boxer--had 12-2 record--served in WW!! in the Air Force--but his plane crashed, and he was injured so severely, he had to undergo facial reconstruction--tried to become a journalist,then got into acting on the stage,eventually becoming Marlon Brando's understudy.....and the rest is history---Palance had a 1000 acre ranch in California but his true home was a heavily forested 500 acre farm in Pennsylvania---A painter,poet,and he had a great love for trees---Palance was married and had three children
