Salesman – Original 1969 reviews


It would appear that Salesman has been impressing the critics for forty years, if the recent Publicola review is any evidence (“The best movie I’ve seen all year”).

Here’s Vincent Canby’s original review (didn’t anyone else review movies for the NY Times in the late 60s?), followed by another piece that references Salesman (called “Why, Even You and I Can Be Stars” – prescient, no? If you like that, read on for Canby’s comments about amazing new mobile filmmaking technology).
