Cause of Death:
Natural Causes


Death Summary: Karl Malden died from natural causes at his Brentwood neighborhood home in Los Angeles. He was 97 years old.

Who was Karl Malden : Malden was an Academy winning actor that had a career that spanned over 70 years. He is probably best remembered for his roles in classic films such as: A Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront and One-Eyed Jacks. You may remember him from his famed role of Mike Stone on the 1970s crime drama, The Streets of San Francisco.

At the age of 22 Mladen Sekulovich changed his name to Karl Malden over fear of losing acting jobs just based on his name. Malden often found clever ways to say “Sekulovich” in his films and televisions series.

Malden had a series of famous American Express commercials during the 1970s and 1980s where he delivered the famous line “Don’t leave home without them!”

Along with his illustrious acting career Malden also held a seat on the United States Postal Service's 16-member Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee. The role of the committee was to review recommendations for U.S. commemorative postage stamps.
