Karl Malden is alive, hopefully well and three years shy of his 100th birthday. Malden was no spring chicken when he played Mitch in the original 1947 stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire — he was 35 years old. He was about 57 or 58 when he played Omar Bradley in Patton. And he was born with the name Mladen George Sekulovich . Has any marquee-value actor ever made it to 100?
