Trivia

The 1966 television drama "Death of a Salesman" was video taped in Los Angeles at the CBS Television City (studios), located at Beverly Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue. Tom John, an established New York television designer/art director was hired to design the production. Tom employed his NY assistant, Chuck Murawski as his assistant art director, flying Chuck from New York for the four week prep period. The television play adaptation was rehearsed in the mezzanine rehearsal rooms adjacent the third floor art department. (This rehearsal hall was later used by Carol Burnett for her show's rehearsal and for her private exercise club meetings during the 'Carol Burnett Variety Show" weekly schedule.) During the production period, Tom and another 'Hollywood designer friend' Jim Trittipo, who often visited each other during the production schedule, late one mid-night, were in the CBS art department. An original gauche film production sketch from "Gone With The Wind" had graced the walls of the art department for years! The pair decided to steal the "burning of Atlanta" sketch, using a mat knife, slicing the illustration down the middle, so that each could have a 'souvenier'. See more »

Lee J. Cobb was the best Willy Loman by far!
3 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

Arthur Miller's play is an American classic, timeless and poignant. I've seen three film/TV and one stage version of the play. Lee J. Cobb's performance is the most powerful and frightening, comparable to his earlier performance in "12 Angry Men". As far as the character of Willy Loman and the sales profession a recommended viewing of "Glengarry Glen Ross" would be enlightening.
