Hard to find. Worth the effort.
21 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This American Playhouse TV version of Arthur Miller's classic drama is the best I've seen. And I've seen a lot. From off-Broadway to Community College performances, and everything in between. James Whitmore is perfectly cast as Joe Keller. His hang-dog manner is much better suited to the role than any other I have seen; certainly better than Edward G. Robinson's tough-guy approach in the 1948 film version. Joan Allen is also a perfect choice for the role of Ann. Both she and Aidan Quinn run the gamut of emotions without ever losing authenticity. Michael Learned is one of few actresses I've seen able to pull off the tough role of Kate without seeming silly or disturbed.

Fortunately for me, I wisely recorded, on VHS, the one and only PBS broadcast of this version in my area. It appears to only be available in VHS, and at exorbitant collectible prices.
