The character of Gwen in Elia Kazan
's 1967 best-seller is based on his second wife, Barbara Loden
. Ironically, Faye Dunaway
--who played Gwen in the movie--had been Loden's understudy in the 1964 Broadway production of "After the Fall", in which Loden played the role of Maggie. The character of Maggie was based on Marilyn Monroe
, the second wife of the play's author, Arthur Miller
. The 1964 production by the Lincoln Center Repetory Company was directed by Kazan, who was the co-manager of the acting troupe. Loden won the 1964 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play. Dunaway played the part of Maggie in the 1974 TV movie (After the Fall
(1974)). According to Mark Harris in his 2008 book "Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood" (one of which was Bonnie and Clyde
(1967), which made Dunaway a star), Dunaway as a tyro actress who was part of Kazan's Lincoln Center repertory company, carefully studied Loden's performance. See more
