Subject: R.I.P. Walter J. "Jack" Palance

Written By: HawkTheSlayer on 11/13/06 at 4:39 am

Just a few days ago, the Silver Screen lost a truly great actor.

The deceased was a man who was 71, when he won his only Oscar, and instead of rambling on for a half-hour, he did something truly amazing: about 20 push-ups!

Walter "Jack" Palance was an onscreen legend, known for his seemingly broken speech patterns, perpetual grimace, and stereotypical casting as the "bad guy".

He played most every conceivable role, from Western outlaw, to disciple of Dracula, to an aging Police detective, to fiendish overlord. His only Oscar came from his supporting role in "City Slickers".
He also acted in many Italian films, and played in quite a few war films. His first credited onscreen role was in the Western "Shane".

He was an inspiration to many, and a gentleman to those who knew him.
I hope he knows that some of us are thinking of him, and wishing he were still here.

Erin already made a thread about this in the 2000s section.
