James Whitmore's performance is not to be missed.
31 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Set in the boom years following WWII, I missed this little gem when it originally aired in 1986. As soon as I learned that James Whitmore was in the cast, I knew I was guaranteed a brilliant performance. No disappointment there. Don't confuse the title, "All My Sons" with the almost 50 year old Fred MacMurray sitcom of the same name. The resemblance stops there. It was nice seeing the accomplished Michael Learned again, this time in the role of Joe Keller's(James Whitmore's)wife. I particularly enjoyed the intense interaction between James Whitmore's character and 'George'. Not to be overlooked is the performance by the young actor portraying Joe Keller's son, Aiden Quinn. No unnecessary chit-chat filler dialog, every word carefully chosen to lure the audience to the shocking conclusion. I would be remiss in not mentioning Joan Allen's performance as the strong willed Ann Deever, sweetheart of Joe Keller's long missing in action other son. It was no surprise when I learned after the viewing that it was a TV adaptation of an Arthur Miller play. It was great watching the master at work. James Whitmore could act more with a facial expression or a gesture, than a lesser actor with 10 pages of dialog. Cast him in a work like this, and you have cinema magic!
