    Damn, I always liked Mr. Palance. RIP

    RIP Curly!!!

    A wonderful character actor who finally got recognized after his career was almost over.:rolleyes:

    I wonder if he's doing any one-armed push-ups, wherever he is????:)

    One thing that a lot of people don't know, about Mr Palance, is that he was a very generous and kind man, off the screen. Pretty much a complete opposite of the majority of his on-screen personas.

    1950's war flick "Attack" was my favorite Jack Palance performance.

    Loved him in "Young Guns" as Lawrence G. Murphy.

    My three favorites of his were "Attack", "Shane," & "Barabbas."
