Jack Palance


Jack Palance Trivia


  • Trivia

    • While an understudy to Marlon Brando in the Broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Brando, who was into athletics, rigged up a punching bag in the theater's boiler room and invited Jack to work out with him. One night, Jack threw a hard punch that missed the bag and landed square on Brando's nose. The star had to be hospitalized and understudy Palance created his own big break by going on for Brando. Jack's reviews as Stanley Kowalski helped get him a 20th Century-Fox contract.
