“Curly Washburn” Passes On…

We know him better as actor Jack Palance; his breakout performance in “City Slickers” earned him a Best Supporting Actor win. He was also the host of “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!”

Palance died today at his home in Montecito, CA.

Great actor, great gravelly voice. He’ll truly be missed. My favorite memory of him was his line at the Oscars (when he won) to the audience: “Billy Crystal…I crap bigger than him.”

Your memories of him?
