      Mildred Dunnock

      Mildred Dunnock

      Highest Rated: 100% Death of a Salesman (1951)

      Lowest Rated: 47% Butterfield 8 (1960)

      Birthday: Jan 25, 1901

      Birthplace: Baltimore, Maryland, USA

      When Mildred Dunnock quietly demanded that "Attention must be paid" to Willy Loman in the 1949 Broadway premiere of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" opposite Lee J. Cobb, her indelible performance as Linda Loman became the embodiment of Miller's idealized mother figure: loving, supportive mother and wife and the family's moral balast. She repeated her landmark performance in the disappointing 1951 Laslo Benedek film opposite Fredric March (winning her first Oscar nomination) and again opposite Cobb in the brilliant 1966 TV adaptation (directed by Alex Segal) and for the Caedmon recording in the 1960s.
