Biography

Lattimer Mines, Pennsylvania, USA
He exemplified evil incarnate on film -- portraying some of the most intensely despised villains witnessed in 50s westerns and melodrama -- and Jack Palance went on to win "Best Supporting Actor" nominations for two of them early in his career. It would take a grizzled, eccentric comic performance 40 years later, however, for him to finally grab the coveted statuette.

Of Ukranian descent, Palance was born Volodymyr Jack Palahniuk on February 18, 1919, in Pennsylvania coal country, to Anna (Gramiak) and Ivan Palahniuk. His father, an anthracite miner, died of black lung disease. Read more...
