Glengarry Glen Ross was released to theaters on October 2, 1992. Though it was a box office failure, it was critically acclaimed and is now considered a cult classic. The world premiere was held at the 49th Venice Film Festival, where Jack Lemmon was awarded the Volpi Cup for Best Actor, and Al Pacino was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor.
One of the best scenes from the movie, and one of the best scenes in history to us, is the sales meeting scene where Blake, played by Alec Baldwin, is sent by Mitch and Murray, the owners of Premiere Properties, to motivate the sales team. He unleashes a torrent of verbal abuse on the salesmen and says that only the top two salesmen will be allowed access to the more promising Glengarry leads and the rest of them will be fired within two weeks.
