Summary for Act 3 and 4[edit]

Since this play is four acts there should be a summary of all four, not just the first two.Staticshakedown (talk) 23:54, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Whose wishes?[edit]

The article says: "In keeping with O’Neill’s wishes, Long Day's Journey Into Night was first performed by the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, Sweden." But O'Neill's wishes were that the play never be performed, as stated in the first paragraph.

O'Neill's wishes were definitly that the play should only be published after his death. If he wanted it published, I'm sure he wouldn't have minded it being performed as well, don't you think? Elizej 15:49, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

The American Cash Cab said he didn't want it performed. ChozoBoy (talk) 23:40, 14 January 2010 (UTC)


This page should be merged with Long Day's Journey into Night

Didn't know the other one was there. Since this one has more information, I've redirected into to Into. We would need admin help to move readjust should into be the proper title. John (Jwy) 03:26, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Mary Doesn't Drink?[edit]

She definitely throws a few back with Catherine in the play. Am I right? - Bagel7 00:34, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

That she do--hey Colin. 20:15, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Homage from Siggraph[edit]

At one of the mid-80s SIGGRAPH conferences, there was an animation called Quest: A Long Ray's Journey Into Light, a reference to the computer animation technique of ray tracing. -- WillWare 14:13, 13 November 2007 (UTC)


"Facts don't mean a thing. What you want to believe: that's the only truth." So says Edmund, after coming home drunk and his father tells him not to waste electricity by leaving on an electric lamp. --Uncle Ed (talk) 02:01, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Into or into[edit]

It's capitalised as "Into" everywhere, including in the lede, but the article title has "into". These need to be made the same, one way or another. -- ♬ Jack of Oz[your turn] 21:40, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Character descriptions[edit]

Are such detailed character descriptions appropriate for an encyclopedia article? The shape of every person's nose, their attire, etc.? I know O'Neill liked his excessively detailed descriptions but even the Hamlet article doesn't go this deep. Henry chianski (talk) 16:47, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
