Arthur Miller: Man Of The Century
“Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.”— Arthur Miller, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan
Widely considered one of the greatest American playwrights of the 20th century, Arthur Miller is best known for The Crucible, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning, Death of a Salesman. Born in New York in early 1900s to an immigrant family of Polish Jewish descent, Miller wrote his first play in college, and quickly rose to become a significant player on the Broadway scene. Established as a great American dramatist, Miller rose to fame with his marriage to Hollywood starlet, Marilyn Monroe, and the two emerged as the quintessential Hollywood couple.
This documentary presents a portrait of a writer and creator who left an indelible mark on the world today. Torn between between glamour, success, social criticism and love, Miller’s biography is intimately connected to the great themes of the century — World War Two, the Atomic Bomb and the Cold War.
