Death Of A Salesman
The play "Death Of A Salesman" , the brainchild of Arthur Miller was
transformed and fitted to the movie screen in the year 1986. The play
itself is set in the house of Willy Loman, and tells the melancholy story

character Willy Loman, his wife Linda, and their two sons Hap and Biff

later in the play,(on par with his luck) translates into Willy getting
fired. As the plot unfolds we discover that Willy had a rich brother who
recently died named Ben, whom Willy looked upon with great admiration for
becoming extremely wealthy and the ripe old age of 21. However Willy
also becomes very depressed when Ben leaves, the fact being...
