Karl Malden Dies at 97

Actor Karl Malden passed away today of natural causes. He was 97.

Malden was probably best known for his sizable nose as much as starring in “The Streets of San Francisco” with Michael Douglas and being the pitchman for American Express, both in the 1970s.

He also won the Oscar for supporting actor for his role as Mitch in A Streetcar Named Desire and was nominated again in 1954 with On the Waterfront. He also appeared in Patton, Nuts, Gypsy, Baby Doll, Pollyanna and one of my faves, the Matt Helm flick Murderers Row.

The man was an acting treasure, and he’ll be missed.
