I think that it's a safe bet that 50 years from now people will still enjoy movies like "Patton", "On the Waterfront" or "A Street Car Named Desire".

Very well-said! Thanks for posting! Karl started out in the Actors Workshop in New York when it was just beginning. He did a ton of stage work.

He was really good as the priest in On the Waterfront.
