Trivia

In the scene where Howard is showing Willy his new "wire recorder", you hear Howard's "son" reciting state capitals. The voice of Howard's "son" is actually June Foray using the same voice she used for Rocket "Rocky" J. Squirrel in The Bullwinkle Show (1961) See more »

must buy from Broadway Theatre Archive
31 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Just got this from Broadway Theatre Archive. I would recommend this to anyone remotely interested in this play and the history of American theater. While not the "film" the Dustin Hoffman version is, I found it more moving. It preserves two great performances, the original ones on Broadway. Lee J. Cobb is amazing. More than any other performance of this I've seen, he successfully shows Willy's horrifying diminishment in mental capacity while losing none of his character's or the play's emotional power. Mildred Dunnock is softer toward Willy than her successors but shows the steel within her when she deals with her sons. All in all a heartbreaking performance.

George Segal is good as Biff, but unlike the more evenly balanced Dustin Hoffman-John Malkovich version, is somewhat dwarfed by Lee J. Cobb's Willy. James Farentino, who made a superb Biff on Broadway with George C. Scott, makes a superb Hap.
