Jack Palance 1919-2006
No One Mastered Rugged Cowboys—or One-Armed Push-Ups—Like the City Slickers Actor
But there was more to Palance than a gravelly voice, craggy features and roles like the cantankerous Curly in City Slickers. "He was very sensitive and kind," says actor Edward James Olmos, a pal. Born to Ukrainian immigrant parents in Lattimer Mines, Pa., Palance (then named Vladimir Palahniuk) was a coal miner, boxer and Marlon Brando's Broadway understudy in A Streetcar Named Desire before finding Hollywood success. Still, the twice-divorced actor often shied away from the spotlight, preferring instead to dote on daughters Holly, 56, Brooke, 54, and son Cody, who died in 1998 of malignant melanoma. "He never played the game," says Holly. "So few people have the courage to do that."
