I saw that Karl Malden passed away today. I didn't know he was my grandfather's age. Oh well. I also didn't know he won an Academy Award in 1951 for "A Streetcar Named Desire". I only knew him from "The Streets of San Fransisco" and those old American Express commercials from way back when.

He was one of the last of the old school actors left. He was a fellow who didn't have the looks of Marlon Brando, but he could keep up with Brando in any role you'd care to give him. I remember him in Patton and always thought Karl did a great job with the roll of Omar Bradley.

So long, may you be happy in your next role.
