All My Children star James Mitchell, who played Palmer Cortlandt, dies at 89
James Mitchell was an American actor and dancer. Although he is best-known to television audiences as Palmer Cortlandt on the soap opera All My Children (1979 – 2009), theatre and dance historians remember him as one of Agnes de Mille‘s leading dancers. Mitchell’s skill at combining dance and acting was considered something of a novelty; in 1959, the critic Olga Maynard singled him out as “an important example of the new dancer-actor-singer in American ballet”, pointing to his interpretive abilities and “masculine” technique.
James Mitchell was born on February 29th, 1920.
