Last month Karl Malden died at age 97, and a few hours later Michael Jackson stole the spotlight away. Yesterday screenwriter Budd Schulberg died at age 95, and a few hours later teenpic director John Hughes stole the spotlight away again.

I've got nothing against Jackson or Hughes, but if you want to see a couple of real artists at work, check out this clip of Malden's soliloquy for a murdered dock worker in On the Waterfront, from a script by Schulberg. They don't make 'em like that anymore.
