Karl Malden Facts
Was offered a scholarship to attend Chicago's Goodman Theater where he met future wife, Mona Greenberg, a fellow scholarship student. They wed in 1938 and remained married for over 70 years until Karl's death in 2009.

Received both of his Oscar-nominations for movies also starring Marlon Brando.

He had not saved enough money to pay for one semester of schooling at the Goodman Theatre, the dramatic arm of the Chicago Art Institute, despite his working in the steel mills for a few years. He made a deal with the director of the program, hence, he gambled what little money he had agreeing that if he impressed the staff during his first semester, he would be given a full scholarship.
