Former SAG President, won Oscar for role of Mitch in A Streetcar Named Desire on both the stage and screen (Sadly he was the last surviving main player for both the play and movie), played Father Barry in On The Waterfront, was a staple in Tennessee Williams/Elia Kazan productions, co-starred in 3 films with Marlon Brando, played Omar Bradley in Patton, got a second life in TV on The Streets of San Francisco with a young Michael Douglas, and we cannot forget his trademark schnozz.

He lived a long life dying at 97. RIP.

The first time I ever became aware of him was his role as Gen. Omar Bradley in 'Patton'.

Calling him a "character actor" doesn't quite do his career justice.

"Supporting actor" seems to be a better fit. And a strong supporting actor at that.

An expectedly brilliant piece by Roger Ebert on Malden:

Apparently the scene I just showed you was a real, full, beer can that Kazan wanted another take on. They were not kidding about Kazan being a Method Actor's Director.

Truly is a person with a great American story and at the same time despite his fame was incredibly humble.
