R.I.P. Jack Palance

in AppleOutsider edited January 2014
I suppose many of you are too young to realize who this actor was but he always made you believe he was a force to be reckoned with. Whether he was in the background of an " A " movie like " City Slickers " or in the foreground of a " B " movie like " Dracula ". Or even a bad guy in the " Buck Rogers " show or a movie like " Shane ". When he was on the screen you payed attention!


Here's a little thing from AICN about his passing.

    Wow. Where's all the love for Jack Palance?

    From "Panic in the Streets" to "City Slickers" he will be remembered...

    One film you might want to check out. "Vamos a Matar Companeros!"

    A Spaghetti Western film by Sergio Corbucci. Jack plays a strange, wooden-handed, marijuana smoking Secret Service agent with a pet falcon on his shoulder. Not sure if Jack was really puffing the stuff, but his performance is classic Palance.

    True a-class actor of a huge list of b-movies.

    Contempt (1963) Jean-Luc Godard

    Highly recommended, with Palance, Bardot, Piccoli, and Fritz Lang. Antonioni playbook is used on this.
