The real story behind the world of sales. This is a realistic portrayal of what it is to try making a life in high pressure sales with all its highs and lows; promises of fortunes and deliveries of dross. Red-leads and dead-leads are to blame for life's outcomes. Living with "Objection, Rebuttal, Close".Written by
None of the actors who appeared in the original play productions of "Glengarry Glen Ross" (London, Chicago or Broadway) starred in the movie, though Joe Mantegna was interested in reprising his role as Ricky Roma in this film version. See more »
The neon sign on the restaurant across from the office has 4 or 5 of its letters on each line not operating. In the scene where Aaronow and Moss are in a car across from the restaurant, all of the letters on the sign are illuminated, as can be seen out the window of the car behind Moss. When they get out of the car, the letters are, again, not working. See more »
Where are you going?
To the restaurant. What do you fucking care?
Aren't you going out today?
With what, John? With what? Answer me! They stole the Glengarry leads, they stole Rio Rancho.
I have the stuff from last year's file.
Oh oh oh... your nostalgia file. Oh great. That's great, cause you know I don't have to...
Do you want to go out today...?
I don't have to eat this month. Great. Give it to me. Bring 'em. C'mon.
Fucking Mitch & Murray and a shit ape!

No film that I have ever seen expresses the path that the working man follows better than this one. Lemmon and Arkin are perfect as the salesman who's luck has turned towards the negative. You can literally see their will to live being sucked out of them with every blown sale and missed opportunity. Ed Harris is great as the angry salesman who is willing to do what it takes to save his own future. Kevin Spacey plays the tight -collared boss to a T, pushing people and not giving them the breaks they need. The two most quoted characters of any movie I know are those played by Pacino and Baldwin. Pacino always excels in parts where his anger and ability to create believable outbursts are showcased, as they are in this part. All that I can say about Baldwin is that this is definitely his best performance and the writing for his character is unbelievable. I can watch his 10 minute scene over and over again. This movie rules in every way possible. 10 out of 10. (I don't give that rating easily)
