Arthur Miller’s intriguing dates

Reading the almanac in the newspaper today, I noticed something interesting and theatrical.

Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman opened 59 years ago today — Feb. 10, 1949 — at Broadway’s Morosco Theater.

And Arthur Miller died three years ago today — Feb. 10, 2005 — at age 89.

In honor of this curious chronology, here’s a scene from the 1966 broadcast of Salesman on CBS starring Lee J. Cobb and Mildred Dunnock.
