Trivia

Writer Norman Krasna initially viewed the male lead as one the audience would view as a kind of a "shitkicker" - a Gary Cooper or a Jimmy Stewart. Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, Rock Hudson, James Stewart and Yul Brynner all turned down the male lead. Yves Montand was cast after starring in The Crucible (1957) (US title: The Crucible), based on a play also written by Miller. See more »

Goofs

Although revue is supposed to be taking place in a theater-in-the-round, most of action actually takes place on a thrust stage with no rear seating and is staged for traditional theater where audience sits in front. See more »

The cameos by Milton Berle, Bing Crosby, and Gene Kelly were OK. But Marilyn...
