Hi, Diane. I remember, when I was in the Army, being asked several times if I was related to Frank Zane. Not being an afficianado of body-building, my response was generally, "Who the hell is Frank Zane?" Actually, Frank is Polish. Likewise, actor Billy Zane is not a member of the family; he's Greek, and 'Zane' is a shortened version of his original surname. Of course, in 1980, I got a major kick when the 2nd Armored Division commander, Maj Gen Prillaman, asked me if I was related to BETTY Zane! I told him not Betty, but her brother Isaac.
