Well, good old Karl Malden has died at the age of 97 Armchair Commentary: Karl Malden, 1912-2009 He was a character actor whose bulbous nose made him instantly recognizable for over five decades. He was rock-solid in some of the great supporting roles in movie history and in iconic movies such as On The Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire, Patton, Nevada Smith, The Cincinnati Kid, Cheyenne Autumn, How The West Was Won, One-eyed Jacks, Halls Of Montezuma. He also played alongside grass-green Michael Douglas in the tv detective show The Streets of San Francisco from 1971 to 1977. He parlayed that role into being the main spokesman for American Express in a series ads in the 70's and 80's: YouTube - Karl Malden American Express Traveller Checks Commercial 1985


His face had what they used to call "character". But I suspect it was more than just his face which possessed character: he was married to his wife Mona since 1938 - 71 years. Here's a clip from Waterfront, in a role as a priest who rages about the crushing oppression of a corrupt longshoreman's union: YouTube - Karl Malden as Father Corrigan in "On the Waterfront"

Karl Malden: the last American man who looked natural wearing a fedora.
