Synopsis: In this witty, graceful memoir, Karl Malden, one of our most respected stars of stage, screen and television, tells of the heartbreaks and triumphs of an acting life that has spanned more than 50 years and included associations with such figures as Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, and Vivien Leigh. 16 photos.
Review: How many times did Karl Malden lean his retro hat and cauliflower nose into your TV set and intone "The American Express card--Don't leave home without it"? Would it surprise you to learn that such a rock-solid spokesman for capitalism flirted with communism--or rather, it flirted with him--during his formative years in New York's Group Theatre, alongside stalwarts such as Elia Kazan, Clifford Odets, and Harold Clurman? Reconciling his idealistic stage youth with his mature commercial years, and being stolidly as proud of one as the other, is Malden's goal in this earnest memoir. Malden offers insights into two generations of acting: one that put him in the original cast of A Streetcar Named Desire, and one that made him star of TV's The Streets of San Francisco.
