Miller’s pillar

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

I was disappointed that none of the obituaries or articles about Arthur Miller’s death mentioned his longtime agent Kay Brown. She was a formidable woman and one of the first female play and motion picture agents in the entertainment industry.

She represented Arthur for 35 years, including his major plays, such as “Death of a Salesman,” “The Crucible” and “All My Sons.” Before becoming an agent, she persuaded David O. Selznick to buy the motion picture rights to “Gone With the Wind” and then represented the novel for 30 years. Her diverse clients included Ingrid Bergman, Yukio Mishima, Alfred Hitchcock and Thomas Mann.

Arthur Miller married Marilyn Monroe at Brown’s house in Westchester, N.Y.
