Jack Palance dies at 87

Oscar-winner died of natural causes in his California home

LOS ANGELES - Jack Palance, the craggy-faced menace in “Shane,” “Sudden Fear” and other films who turned successfully to comedy at 70 with his Oscar-winning self-parody in “City Slickers,” died Friday.

Palance died of natural causes at his home in Montecito, Calif., surrounded by family, said spokesman Dick Guttman. He was 87.

Does anyone remember the time Palance played "Dracula?" It was probably a cheaply made movie, but Palance was able to inject a degree of humanity into an otherwise monstrous character. I found myself feeling sorry for Dracula.

I think that was due to Jack Palance's immense talent.

He'll definitely be missed.
