Karl Malden has passed away at the age of 97. No cause of death listed, but I'm betting it was simply advanced age. A great actor, he won an Oscar in '51 for A Streetcar Named Desire, and continued a career in Hollywood for dedcades.
Mollie Sugden has also passed away. 86, she had suffered from a long illness. She was best known for playing Mrs. Slocombe in the long-running BBC sitcom “Are You Being Served?” in the 1970s and 1980s.
