All My Sons
Directed by Irving Reis
Based on the work of acclaimed playwright Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman, The Crucible) and starring Edward G. Robinson (Scarlet Street, Night Has a Thousand Eyes) and Burt Lancaster (I Walk Alone, Elmer Gantry), All My Sons is a wartime tragedy of a family torn apart and forced to come to terms with their inner demons. Chris Keller (Lancaster) returns home from war with news of his impending engagement to Ann Deever (Louisa Horton, Walk East on Beacon!), the fiancée of his missing-in-action and presumed-dead brother. With Ann come memories better left forgotten. As the ghosts of the past creep back into the Keller home, Chris’s father (Robinson) makes a stunning and painful revelation that will change the family forever. Directed by Irving Reis (The Big Street, Enchantment) and shot by Russell Metty (Touch of Evil, Spartacus), this powerful drama is an unforgettable tale of moral dilemmas and remains a timeless classic.
