    Unlike Michael Jackson, whose shocking death still reverberates worldwide, leaving his fans numb with grief, Karl sailed off into the sunset with little fanfare, leaving behind a legacy of greatness. (as your scroll proudly announces above)

    His two films for Kazan, his Oscar winning turn in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE and his portrayal of the truth-seeking priest in ON THE WATERFRONT for me are his finest ever, but there’s no denying thathis television run in SAN FRANCISCO may have earned him the most veneration.

    97 years old. Quite a remarkable run, and 70 years of marriage to the same woman. A testament to his happy (and fruitful) life.

    Malden had a remarkable career. He was one of those actors who always seemed to be around and always stood out. In “Streetcar” and “Waterfront” he gave brilliant performances. I also thought he was excellent in “Fear Strikes Out.”

    70 years of marriage is in itself an amazing feat. To be an actor and be married to the same women for so long is close to being a miracle. As you say “a testement to his happy (and fruitful) life.
