Brentwood service station to be named after thesp

Karl Malden, who received a Lifetime Achievment Award from the Screen Actors’ Guild, an Oscar (“A Streetcar Named Desire,” 1951) and an Emmy, will next be honored by the U.S. government.

On Nov.9, the U.S. Postal Service Station on Barrington Avenue in Brentwood will be named for Malden.

“I love it,” said Malden, 93. “It’s also the post office near my home.”

Malden is a longtime (15 years) member of the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee that meets three to four times a year in D.C. under Congressional and Presidential approval.

Malden says he hasn’t “retired” from acting, “I just quit,” he laughs. However he remains an active board member of the Geffen Playhouse.

And, as past president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, he also attends its board member lunches.
