4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'"Attention must be paid" to this abbreviated but superb 1966 television adaptation by Arthur Miller of his Pultizer Prize-winning modern tragedy, starring the incomparable Lee J. Cobb and Mildred Dunnock recreating their original Broadway roles as the Lomans. In a career-defining performance, Cobb portrays the suffering Willy Loman --the middle-aged man at the end of his emotional rope--with Dunnock equally impressive as his patient wife, Linda. George Segal and James Farentino play their disillusioned sons, Biff and Happy. Shattering and unforgettable, this landmark television production has been digitally re-mastered and will endure for all generations to come.' --Broadway Theatre Archive
