I didn't see a thread on his passing either here or in After Hours.
Well, I admire his 'Death of a Salesman' (only seen it as a TV movie with Hoffman&Co)
Sad news. We studied The Crucible at school, and I was really impressed by his work. Always wanted to get around to reading or seeing more.
The world needs another Arthur Miller, whose plays urge all within earshot to the highest personal code of honor. He leaves behind as a legacy not only THE great American play ("Death Of A Salesman") but many other works of genius that people will be reading and performing for at least another century or so. If you doubt that, consider this: Arthur Miller is the most oft-produced playwright in the English language besides Shakespeare.
If anyone is curious about checking out some Arthur Miller on home video, my strongest recommendation would be to find the television version of "All My Sons," released on vhs by Universal years ago but, unfortunately, not yet on disc. There is also the film version of "The Crucible" and two different tv versions of "Death of A Salesman" all readily available on dvd.
Really? Which is the other one? Or do you mean two different versions of the same film?
There's the Dustin Hoffman version, the Brian Dennehy version, the Lee J. Cobb version, the Rob Steiger version, and the Warren Mitchell version. The Lee J. Cobb one and the Dustin Hoffman versions are perhaps the most notable. The former because the part of Willy Loman was WRITTEN for Cobb in the original play. The latter because it was Dustin Hoffman smack dab between Kramer vs. Kramer and Rain Man - right at the top of his game.
