    Karl Malden was amazing in _On the Waterfront._ Well, actually, everyone in it was great, but at the time I saw _On the Waterfront_ (in repertory), my familiarity with Malden was as someone on _The Streets of San Francisco,_ which I had never watched, and I knew Brando and Eva Marie Saint would be good, but Malden blew me away. I saw the movie on a lovely Saturday or Sunday afternoon and when I left the theater it just seemed to wrong that the sun should be in the sky. I was really moved.

    Mark Harmon always seems like such a nice guy. That 's not really remarkable or anything, or you wouldn't think it would be. But, in a business where everybody seems to just do anything to get more and more attention, Mr. Harmon just seems relaxed and friendly. That's really cool.

    What a wonderful conversation. Mark Harmon tops the list as a man to emulate, whether actor, football star or human being. Thank you for reminding me of the definition of class.

    I always thought that Mark Harmon and Tom Cruise look very similar, Mark Harmon is older obviously and I thought that maybe he wasn't doing as well as Tom Cruise as for his career however after NCIS I'm sure he's fine.

    Is that not George Burns on the left? I'd have rather met him over John Wayne as great as the Duke was.

    Carlin was clean in his early days. Watch Flash-Player of him on Ed Sullivan. Not one bad word.

      lechatbotte - He was also a lot goofier/hippie-ish. Then the world changed and so did he, becoming bitter, resentful and really just ripping into the grand delusion that our lives and society are perfect

    Read a few months ago that Mark Harmon was not going to be in NCIS as much because of ill health, but he looks great here. He's 20 years older than me but looks a lot healthier.

    I found that Carson interview on Flash-Player and Harmon had a very strange fish story and Carlin said."Mark, never go to the zoo."

    I greatly enjoyed his Karl Malden story. Michael Douglas has often said working with him on "The Streets of San Francisco" was like going to acting class everyday.

    Back in '80, I remember catching a snippet of the Merv Griffin show dedicated to promoting "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure," which was a box-office bomb. I remember Telly Savalas was a little P.O.'ed that he had been relegated to once again accepting bad-guy roles after his "Kojak" success had faded.
