Re your post below:
"I have always thought that dark hair aside, Palance looked
the part of Hammett's portrayal of Sam Spade: all angular
planes and high cheek bones, sort of like a 'blonde Satan.'
Now, Bogart made the role his own, no question (and I yield
to no one in my admiration of Bogey, Huston and that glorious
movie they made), but I've always thought that Palance would
have been a terrific Sam Spade."
Interesting thought, particularly considering that Palance
DID play a Bogart role, Roy Earle in I DIED A THOUSAND TIMES,
the remake of HIGH SIERRA.
