Death of a Salesman (1951)

American Tragedy

Death of a Salesman, a tragedy of the common man, adapted from the 1949 stage drama by Arthur Miller, one of America’s greatest playwrights. This film, on the failure of the American Dream, stars Frederic March and Mildred Dunnock and is directed by  László Benedek, a Hungarian Jew. Death of a Salesman has universal appeal and long-standing significance, since it raises issues of vital importance to the average person, notably love, freedom, individuality, solidarity, justice and creativity—all of which are important for a humane society. You can also watch the 1985 TV version, starring Dustin Hoffman and Kate Reid, and directed by Volker Schlöndorff, [here]. For more, go [here] and [here] and [here].
