Easton Press, Norwalk. CT 1997. Karl Malden "When Do I Start?" Signed Limited First Edition. Full genuine leather. Limited to only 1,050 signed and numbered copies. Very Fine. Sealed.

The Academy and Emmy Award-winning actor tells of his poor upbringing in the steel mills of Gary, Indiana, his rise to stage, screen, and television stardom, and his associations with such legends as Elia Kazan, Marlon Brando, and Montgomery Clift.

From Library Journal

This memoir is a peripatetic selection of Malden's encounters with larger-than-life Broadway figures. For younger readers, Malden is known as the star of The Streets of San Francisco and American Express commercials; but many will remember him for his role as Mitch in the original production of A Streetcar Named Desire and his many theatrical accomplishments. Growing up poor in Gary, Indiana, the son of a Serbian mill worker, Malden had to struggle to realize his dream. But after a stint at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, he headed for New York City, where he was to work with legendary figures like Kazan, Strasberg, and Brando. The 1950s was Broadway's heyday but also the time of blacklisting, and Malden paints a vivid picture here of those times. Moreover, the actor eschews the "down-and-dirty tell-all memoir" so common now to offer his views on the various acting techniques and methods he came upon.

From Entertainment Weekly

Malden, writing with his daughter, manages to be personably without baring his soul. He talks about his daunting leap from steel-mill town to Hollywood and proves a competent, clear-eyed witness to a fair chunk of film history--the rise of Marlon Brando, the fall of Montgomery Clift, the blacklist.... Malden's decency shines through on every page.
