Jack Palance: 1919-2006

Jack Palance, tough guy actor whose more then half a century long career included such highlights as Shane and the TV version of Requiem for a Heavyweight, has passed away from natural causes. Palance was Academy Award nominated for the 1952 film Sudden Fear but didn't win an Oscar until the early 1990's, playing Curley in the dude ranch comedy City Slickers. Palance became a national sentimental favorite after his City Slicker win, and famously performed push-ups on stage during the Oscar Cast. Jack Palance was 87.
