RIP - Jack Palance: Barabarian Extradonaire

Born from Ukranian stock, nee Vladimir Palaniuk, Jack Palance played a numer of famous barbarian roles.

In 1954, he was a nasty and believable Attila the Hun in Sign of the Pagan.

Or when he was Rivak the Barbarian in a sandals and swords Italian film shot in Yugoslavia in 1960.

He was the son of Ghengis Khan, Otogai, in The Mongols.

He appeared in Gor and Outlaw of Gor.

OK, he did other films like Batman and City Slickers. But for me, my favorite performance was when he was an off-beat artist in Bagdad Cafe

We will miss you and your one-armed pushups
