    Karl Malden, one of Hollywood's strongest and most versatile supporting actors, who won an Oscar playing his Broadway-originated role as Mitch in "A Streetcar Named Desire," died today. He was 97.

    Malden starred in the 1970s TV series "The Streets of San Francisco" and was the longtime American Express traveler's-check spokesman, warning travelers to not leave home without it. He died of natural causes at his home in Brentwood, said his daughter Mila Doerner.

    I hope he didn't leave without his American Express!
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    What is so strange about this great number of deaths is that on the way back from DC thsi week, my wife and my oldest daughter and I had this conversation about who some of the oldest living actors were. It started talking about Bob Hope and George Burns both living to be over 100 and then we pondered who was in that 90+ range. Then, bam, they started dropping like flies, starting with Ed McMahon.

    Karl Malden was born Mladen Sekulovich and, as I understand it, he often got that named worked into a script (perhaps just the last name). Now that my just be an urban legend, but I recall hearing that.

    It will be interesting to hear Michael Douglas' words on Malden. He had a real affection for him, having played opposite him on the TV show, The Streets of San Francisco. And his Oscar winning performance was in the movie A Streetcar Named Desire. He was also nominated for On the Waterfront. His last role was in the very first episode of The West Wing that my wife and I ever watched.

    One of my favorites. He was great in Baby Doll and Patton, as well.

    I liked him as an actor a lot. A nose the size of a '56 Buick.

    97 years is a good life. Godspeed and RIP

    This is the day of the expanding man...

    I read the same story today on "Wikipedia," which I know isn't always correct. The article mentioned several movies and TV shows in which Malden did that, including a scene in "Patton" where Malden, playing Omar Bradley, says "get me a helmet, Sekulovich."
    He has been married to the former Mona Greenberg since 12/18/38, which must be close to a record for a marriage in Hollywood.
    I always liked Malden. R.I.P.

    He played a priest three times, a minister once and numerous cops. A an awful nice guy from what I gathered.

    I read his real name once in an article years ago and it's always the first thing I think of when I hear his stage name.

    Streets of San Francisco was a great show. Haven't seen it in years, but I'd like to see how well it has stood the test of time.

    Just watched him the other day in How The West Was Won. I didn't realize he was that old. He led a good life, lived to age 97, and passed away in his sleep. Looking at the way we've seen several celebs leave this earth over the last couple of weeks, Karl can't complain and probably wouldn't.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    The lesson to be learned here is if you're a celebrity, don't give me your autograph. Gone from my signature collection now are:

    Bob Hope
    Buddy Ebsen
    John Inman
    Brandon Lee
    Joe Nuxhall
    Charlton Heston
    Karl Malden
    Paul Newman
    Ray Charles
    Fred Rogers
    Steve Irwin
    Jesse Helms
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
