Douglas To Honour Old Pal Malden
Malden, a former MOTION PICTURE ACADEMY president, will receive the prestigious Monte Cristo Award from the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Connecticut next month (11NOV04) - and Douglas will honour him.
The Monte Cristo Award is named after writer Eugene O'Neill's boyhood home in Connecticut - the Monte Cristo cottage - which was the location for two of Malden's most famous dramas, A LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT and AH, WILDERNESS.
It is awarded annually to an artist whose work best exemplifies the excellence and pioneering spirit of the famed, Nobel Prize-winning playwright.
Previous Monte Cristo Award recipients include Jason Robards and BRIAN DENNEHY.18/10/2004 14:21
