Jeez...I should have noticed that. I was doing a search on "direct" and it was one of the results.

Karl Malden as Harold 'Mitch' Mitchell in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
Winner - Actor in a Supporting Role

Karl is one of my favorite actors.
OK Buddy Boy!! ..I can still picture him saying that, and pointing his finger right into Michael Douglas' chest!

A family friend was a recurring "beat officer" on Streets of San Francisco. IMDb says he only worked on three episodes but I know he did a bunch. :)

A Poll for your favorite extra actor?
A have a friend that's an LAPD Cop. There are a lot around him that say he needs to go to central casting and get in some extra work. They think he could be discovered.

How about a question instead of "Pick the greatest performance."? :)

I changed my mind several times, but ultimately Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy in On the Waterfront (1954) gets my vote. Nicely done, I like the scope and focus of the poll. I am equally impressed of Kazan either to elicit Oscar-nominated performances, appropriately cast the "right actor" for the role or both.
