The great actor Karl Malden was born on this day back in 1912. And he only died back in 2009 at the age of 96. I will always remember his performance of Mitch in A Streetcar Named Desire. He is the only character in that film that I really understand; I feel like I’ve been in that situation countless times. And his performance is, as always, wonderful. He was very good at playing fundamentally decent characters. It always gave me the impression that he was a fundamentally decent guy. He was married to the same woman for over 70 years.
The man of the day, however, is my favorite Marx Brother: Chico Marx who was born in 1887. What is there to say about him other than:
Happy happy birthday!
