Karl Malden Tribute


An Aero Theatre Exclusive!


From his 1937 Broadway debut in GOLDEN BOY to his appearance in 2000 on television’s "The West Wing," Karl Malden acted in hundreds of stage, TV and film productions, winning widespread acclaim as both a lead and a reliable supporting player in his 63-year career.  After training in Chicago, Malden found success on the stage in New York in the late 1930s and bonded with a young Elia Kazan.  Kazan would direct Malden in some of his finest stage and film roles, including ON THE WATERFRONT and A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE.  Malden was equally at home in genres ranging from horror (he worked with Dario Argento) to westerns (THE WILD ROVERS, HOW THE WEST WAS WON) to crime dramas (he found increased popularity in the 1970s as co-star of the cop show "The Streets of San Francisco").  The Cinematheque celebrates Malden’s diversity and talent in a series that includes his seminal performances for Kazan and other work.


Friday, September 18 - 7:30 PM
Double Feature: ON THE WATERFRONT, 1954, Columbia, 108 min. Director Elia Kazan’s stunning adaptation of Budd Schulberg’s account of Hoboken dock-worker life stars Marlon Brando as a has-been fighter who falls in love with the sister (Eva Marie Saint) of the "stool pigeon" he set up. Rod Steiger delivers a wrenching performance as the older brother who helped betray Brando’s chances as a boxer, and Karl Malden is the tough, working-class priest who serves as Brando’s conscience. Trailer | Roger Ebert’s Great Movies




I.B. Technicolor! ONE-EYED JACKS, 1961, Pennebaker Productions/Paramount, 141 min. Originally intended as a project for director Stanley Kubrick (based on various scripts by Sam Peckinpah and Rod Serling, among others), ONE-EYED JACKS became (in)famous as the only film directed by Marlon Brando -- who also stars as an outlaw bent on taking revenge on former friend Karl Malden. Film critic Kevin Thomas will introduce the screening. Trailer




Saturday, September 19 - 7:30 PM
Double Feature: A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, 1951, Warner Bros., 122 min. Director Elia Kazan’s adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ classic play made Marlon Brando a household name for his incendiary portrayal of working-class Stanley Kowalski. Stanley collides headlong with fragile Southern belle Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) when she moves in with her sister, Stanley’s wife, Stella (Kim Hunter). Academy Awards went to Leigh for Best Actress, Hunter for Best Supporting Actress and Karl Malden for Best Supporting Actor. Trailer | Roger Ebert Review

BABY DOLL, 1956, Warner Bros., 114 min. Director Elia Kazan’s controversial film stars Carroll Baker in a groundbreaking performance as a thumb-sucking child bride in the deep South. Karl Malden stars as Archie, her middle-aged husband, a cotton gin owner who eagerly awaits his bride’s 20th birthday, when they will finally consummate their marriage. But rival Silva Vaccaro (Eli Wallach in his film debut) suspects Archie of burning down his business and takes an erotic form of Sicilian revenge. Trailer
