Behind the Scenes of City Slickers

Billy Crystal has new book out called Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys? In an excerpt at The Week, he tells some stories from the 1991 movie City Slickers. They really wanted Jack Palance to play Curly, but he had a scheduling conflict. So they approached Charles Bronson about the role. Bronson's refusal is a classic! But luckily, Palance preferred to do City Slickers over whatever else he had going at the time. Crystal also talks about what Palance was like to work with, what is was like roping Norman the calf, and his experience of déjà vu years before he made the film.
