Movie Fact #754 – May 17th, 2015:

Ever since its release, the 1992 film “Glengarry Glen Ross”, adapted by playwright David Mamet for the screen from his own 1984 Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning play of the same name, has been used to train real life salesmen how to sell and how not to sell. Interestingly, during the production, the actors referred to this film as excuse the profanity, “Death of a Fuckin’ Salesman”. Although, I imagine, the point of showing the film to real salesmen was to avoid that morbid outcome. Hope it did some good in real life.
