OTD October 2 - Glengarry Glen Ross
35 / 44
New Line Cinema

1992: The movie "Glengarry Glen Ross," starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris and Kevin Spacey, opens in theaters. The drama, adapted by David Mamet from his 1984 Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning play of the same name, depicts two days in the lives of four real estate salesmen and how they become desperate when the corporate office sends a trainer to "motivate" them by announcing that, in one week, all except the top two salesmen will be fired. Pacino was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his work in the film.
