Karl Malden

Awards | Downloads | Image Credits

One of Hollywood's most versatile and reliable character actors, Karl Malden played everything from priests, detectives and generals to heavies and song-and-dance men over the course of a five-decade film career beginning in the late 1940s.  During a period of transition in Hollywood, Malden's acting style enabled him to work equally well with established stars who practiced the traditional "external representation" approach to acting as well as those newcomers using a more psychological "method" in the early 1950s.  Though he appeared in his share of B-movies and Warner Bros. programmers, rarely getting the girl, Malden nevertheless made significant contributions to a number of classic films.
