R.I.P. Karl Malden

One of the greatest performers of the 20th century, Mr. Karl Malden, has passed away at the age of 97.  I’ll always remember Malden for his incredibly moving performance as Father Barry in Kazan’s “On the Waterfront.” Never since has a character of such moral strength mixed with embittered humanity been portrayed so beautifully.  He was amazing on screen with Brando, and even though he won the Oscar for “A Streetcar Named Desire,” it’s his work with Kazan and Brando that always astounds me. We will miss you Karl.
