The character of Gwen in 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
(1974), 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. 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
