Jack Palance

Tuesday, 18th February 1919 - Friday, 10th November 2006
Lattimer Mines, PA
USA


Lantern-jawed, distinctive-voiced Palance grabbed hold of any role and came out of the screen at you like a menacing version of William Shatner. Superb in one of his most low-key roles in Baghdad Cafe. RIP.
