Karl Malden

Karl Malden

Karl Malden
American actor won an Oscar for his role in A Streetcar Named Desire and starred in The Streets of San Francisco

For more than six decades Karl Malden, who has died at the age of 97, brought his Method-trained acting talents to bear on powerhouse performances on screen, notably for Elia Kazan in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), for which he won an Oscar, and On The Waterfront (1954), as well as his mature cop in the long-running TV series The Streets of San Franscisco in the 1970s.

Like WC Fields and Jimmy Durante, Malden had one of the most celebrated non-Roman noses in cinema. But whereas those of the two former entertainers produced a comic effect — Fields's bibulous one looked as if it were stuck on like a clown's, and Durante's schnozzle was like a carnival mask — Malden's proboscis seemed to add dramatic intensity to his performances. The more impassioned he became, the more the nose seemed to go on red alert.

This particularity of Malden's appearance came about because he broke his nose twice as a high school American footballer. He had won a scholarship to Arkansas state teachers college, but had to leave to support himself and his family by working in a steel mill in Gary, Indiana. Born Mladen Sekulovich in Chicago, he was brought up in Gary, where his father, Peter Sekulovich, who had been a provincial actor in Yugoslavia, was working in the mill. Karl also delivered milk to make money to go to New York, where he hoped to satisfy his ambition to become an actor.

In New York, in the late 1930s, Malden joined the leftist Group Theatre, which was devoted to social realities and ensemble acting inspired by Stanislavsky at the Moscow Arts Theatre. Its leading light was the playwright Clifford Odets, in whose Golden Boy (1937) Malden appeared as a boxing manager. Also in the play was future director Kazan, with whom Malden was to work several times on stage and screen.

After Malden returned from army service during the second world war, he became a member of the newly formed Actors' Studio, among whom were Marlon Brando and Richard Widmark. In 1947, on Broadway, Kazan, one of the founders of the Actors' Studio, directed Malden in both Arthur Miller's All My Sons and Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire. The latter, in which Malden played Mitch opposite Brando and Jessica Tandy, led to a contract with 20th Century-Fox.

At the studio, Malden played vivid supporting roles in gritty thrillers such as Henry Hathaway's 13 Rue Madeleine and The Kiss Of Death, Kazan's Boomerang (all 1947) and Otto Preminger's Where The Sidewalk Ends (1950). He also added realism to the Henry King western The Gunfighter, and Lewis Milestone's war drama Halls Of Montezuma (both 1950).

During the same period, Malden appeared on Broadway as the Button Moulder in Lee Strasberg's production of Ibsen's Peer Gynt, with John Garfield in the title role, and in Eugene O'Neill's Desire Under the Elms, as the domineering patriarch.

In 1951, Malden won the best supporting actor Oscar for reprising his stage role of Mitch, the shy, sweaty, balding middle-aged suitor of Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) in A Streetcar Named Desire, again directed by Kazan. The most pitiless moment comes when Malden snaps on the naked bulb to expose Blanche's ageing, powdered face to "reality". "I don't want the light, I want magic," she entreats. "Oh, I knew you weren't 16. But I was fool enough to believe you was straight," he replies, his voice trembling with emotion.

The following year, he was playing a man caught in the clutches of a femme fatale (Jennifer Jones) in King Vidor's Ruby Gentry and then the persistent cop who suspects Montgomery Clift's priest of murder in Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess (1953). If it were not already evident from his performances, the intelligence of an actor like Malden could be deduced from the number of major directors with whom he worked. In his best and most personal work he succeeded in exploring depths of moral ambiguity rare in the commercial cinema.

He gave two further powerful performances for Kazan. In On The Waterfront, he was Oscar-nominated for his role as the tough, crusading dockland Catholic priest, Father Barry, who helps bring an end to crooked waterfront politics. Even better was his wonderful portrayal of Archie Lee, the cotton-mill owner husband of a backward thumb-sucking virgin child bride (Carroll Baker) in Baby Doll (1956).

Driven frantic by her refusal to allow him into her bed, even though it is a child's cot, too small for her ample proportions, the boorish, white-trash character is turned by Malden into a tragicomic figure uttering a sustained cry of sexual frustration. "Most actors want to be heroic, sexy and noble. Karl doesn't mind if you to make him look silly. He is more a real person than an actor," Kazan remarked at the time.

In Robert Mulligan's Fear Strikes Out (1956), he played a well-meaning but domineering father who

The 'Golden Boy' Bust of Brian Jones, Beechwood Shopping Centre, Cheltenham

Lewis Brian Hopkin-Jones, better known as Brian Jones, was born in The Park Nursing Home in Cheltenham on Saturday, 28 February, 1942 to Louis and Louisa Jones, who were of Welsh origin. He had one sister Pamela, born on October 3, 1943. She died 2 years later on October 14, 1945 of leukemia. His other sister Barbara was born in 1946. Both of Brian's parents encouraged him to take up music - although an aeronautical engineer by profession, Brian's father played both piano and organ, and led the choir at the local church, Brian's mother was a piano teacher. Educated at Cheltenham's Dean Close School situated close to his home at 335 Hatherley Road, even as a child Brian was interested in music. He took piano lessons and his teachers very quickly discovered his rare musical talent. He eventually took up the clarinet and played it at the school orchestra.

When he was 14, he persuaded his parents to buy him a saxophone and learnt to play it as well and finally at the age of 17 he got his first accoustic guitar as a birthday present. After passing his eleven-plus in 1953 Brian went to Cheltenham Grammar School for Boys. His exam results were excellent, but his refusal to conform to the authority brought the anger of the teachers upon him. In 1959 his 14-year-old girlfriend Valerie got pregnant and she chose to have the baby boy adopted, refusing any further contact from Brian. The matter reached the local newspaper and Brian left school and went travelling through Europe. When he come back to Cheltenham, he began playing at local blues and jazz clubs (among others at what is today called The Prom) with a local group called The Ramrods, in addition to busking and working various odd jobs, such as a bus conductor and an assistant on the record counter of a local shop, and used the money he earned to buy more instruments. In 1961 his second child, Julian Mark Andrews, was born and for a while Brian settled with his then girlfriend Pat Andrews.

Soon after though, Brian left Cheltenham for London. He became a proficient blues musician. A favorite hangout for Brian became the Ealing Club where he would see an act called Alexis Korner's Blues Inc., with nineteen-year-old drummer Charlie Watts. In 1962 Brian recruited Ian Stewart, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards into his newly formed band. It was also Brian who came up with the name The Rollin' Stones, after the track on Muddy Waters album. The Stones had their first gig on 12 July 1962 in the Marquee Club in London with the following line-up: Jagger, Richards, Jones, Stewart, bass player Dick Taylor (later of The Pretty Things) and drummer Tony Chapman. Charlie Watts and Billy Wyman joined the group after several auditions and try-outs.

Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction

Sheff s story is a first: a teenager s addiction from the parent s point of view a real-time chronicle of the shocking descent into substance abuse and the gradual emergence into hope. Before meth, Sheff s son Nic was a varsity athlete, honor student, and award-winning journalist. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who stole money from his eight-year-old brother and lived on the streets. With haunting candor, Sheff traces the first subtle warning signs, the denial (by both child and parents), the three A.M. phone calls (is it Nic? the police? the hospital?), the attempts at rehab, and, at last, the way past addiction. He shows us that, whatever an addict s fate, the rest of the family must care for each other too, lest they become addicted to addiction. Meth is the fastest-growing drug in the United States, as well as the most addictive and the most dangerous wreaking permanent brain damage faster than any other readily available drug. It has invaded every region and demographic in America. This book is the first that treats meth and its impact in depth. But it is not just about meth. Nic s addiction has wrought the same damage that any addiction will wreak. His story, and his father s, are those of any family that contains an addict and one in three American families does.

Amazon Best of the Month, February 2008: From as early as grade school, the world seemed to be on Nic Sheff's string. Bright and athletic, he excelled in any setting and appeared destined for greatness. Yet as childhood exuberance faded into teenage angst, the precocious boy found himself going down a much different path. Seduced by the illicit world of drugs and alcohol, he quickly found himself caught in the clutches of addiction. Beautiful Boy is Nic's story, but from the perspective of his father, David. Achingly honest, it chronicles the betrayal, pain, and terrifying question marks that haunt the loved ones of an addict. Many respond to addiction with a painful oath of silence, but David Sheff opens up personal wounds to reinforce that it is a disease, and must be treated as such. Most importantly, his journey provides those in similar situations with a commodity that they can never lose: hope --Dave Callanan
