    Actor Jack Palance Dies At 87


    (AP) LOS ANGELES Jack Palance, the craggy-faced menace in "Shane," "Sudden Fear" and other films who turned to comedy at 70 with his Oscar-winning role in "City Slickers," died Friday.

    Palance died of natural causes at his home in Montecito, Calif., surrounded by family, said spokesman Dick Guttman. Palance was 85 according to Associated Press records. The family indicated he was 87.

    Palance who was born in 1919, began his film career in 1950 with an appearance in an episode of the television show "Lights Out." He went on to amass a resume of popular appearances in film and television but many were unaware of what he was doing before he became a famous star.

    In the early 1940's, before working as an actor, Palance was a professional heavyweight fighter but that career ended when he went off to fight in World War II, where he was awarded a Purple Heart after he was wounded in combat.

    He's 87, I think old age is still considered a natural cause.

    OMG I remember that Alice! Those 1 handed pushups. Billy Crystal had a running joke going on after that, "latest bulletin - Jack Palance just fathered a child backstage" or something like that. Jack Palance was totally cool

    And yeah, old age. Natural cause, old heart, old lungs, whatever....

    Aaaawwwww, Jack Palance, R.I.P.

    He was kind of a B-star who had that immense come-back in his senior years, thanks to City Slickers. His face and that voice were sooooooo cool.
    He really had a great run.

    I hope I don't sound insensitive, but I thought he was already dead. People live so long these days.

    ^ I know I sorta 'forgot' about him, but I kinda remembered he was still around...and now there's only Peter O'Toole and Paul Newman. My heart is really going to break when 1 of them passes.

    Count me as another one who thought he was already dead. Oops.

    That sounded insensitive--didn't mean it that way. Just.....well, never mind.

    I always liked him. Natural causes is when they don't do an autopsy and he didn't have any obvious disease, at least that's what I think it means.

    "Natural Causes" means that the death was natural but a specific cause was not apparent from the clincal history or circumstances surrounding death. In order to find a cause an autopsy would have been neccessary. In older people autopsies usually aren't done if the circumstances are natural.

    As opposed to homicide, suicide, accidental death...he was 87, things just wear out...
    THE EASIEST WAY OUT IS THROUGH....
