Karl Malden (March 22, 1912 – July 1, 2009), born Mladen George Sekulovich was an American actor. In a career that spanned more than seven decades, he was best known for his role on television as Lt. Mike Stone on the 1970s crime drama, The Streets of San Francisco. During the 1980s he was spokesperson for American Express, reminding cardholders "Don't leave home without it".
The Philopovich's grocery store in Gary, Indiana had a delivery boy name Paul who was an amateur magician. He would deliver groceries to the Sckulovich family on a regular basis. He would show young Mladen tricks when he came by. Mladen saw the delivery boy's early professional performances at the Gary Theater when the young performer rented it for his debut. The performer worked under his family name, Vucic, later changing it to Paul Rosini.
