During World War II, his business partner and neighbor, Steve Deever noticed some faulty airplane parts about to be shipped for use by the U. Chris's confidence in his father's innocence is shaken, however, and in a confrontation with his parents, he is told by Mother that he must believe that Larry is alive.

In All My Sons Miller evidenced the strong influence of both Henrik Ibsen and Greek tragedy, developing a "formula" that he would brilliantly exploit in his next play, Death of a Salesmanwhich many regard as his finest work. But Chris is a family man, and he is devoted to his parents. Greulich, Major Walter A. Mother tells Keller that he ought to volunteer to go to jail--if Chris wants him to. And he does, in the end, learn that the material gain was too costly - as he realizes, the dead pilots were all his sons.

Act Three: After facing the truth, the characters make final choices. The latter has confirmed that Joe told him by phone to "weld up and paint over" the cracked cylinders and to send them out, and later gave a false promise to Steve that he would account for the shipment on the day of arrest. When Chris finally has a moment alone, he confesses his love for her. Keller went home free, while Steve remained in jail, shunned by his family. Sue Bayliss — Sue, 40, is Jim's wife: needling and dangerous, but affectionate.
