Sidney Lumet's directorial debut is a snapshot of the American judicial system in action. Twelve average New York males convene in a very small jury room on a very hot day in order to reach a verdict in a murder trial. Almost everyone wants to vote guilty and get on with their lives except for Juror No. 8 (Henry Fonda), a conscientious citizen who insists on establishing reasonable doubt. Arguments are made, cigarettes are smoked, murder weapons examined, diagrams drawn, and prejudices revealed. Firm opinions weaken and reverse; voices get raised, the clock ticks, and a ghetto kid's life hangs in the balance. Lumet's direction and camerawork steadily builds pressure into the plot. Things start out casual, but wind up so close and tight you can count the pores on the actors' noses. Fonda is good in a role well-suited to his extra-large sense of human dignity but the stealth giant in this actors dozen is the ferocious Lee J. Cobb. Jack Klugman, E.G. Marshall, Martin Balsam, Ed Begley, and Jack Warden play some of the other jurors, and a better assemblage of grizzled method actors shouting at each other won't likely come again. 12 ANGRY MEN was originally written for television, it is a true classic of the anti-McCarthy message era, and is not to be missed.

  • 12 Angry Men

    This is truly a classic. Hard to believe it is 50 years since it has been out. Henry Fonda is the jury foreman on a 1st degree murder trial of an 18 yr. old boy accused of killing his father his father in N.Y. City. We have watched this dozens of times and still watch in fascination. Bought this again as a gift for friend. Young or old, this movie is so touching to the viewer. It sarts with Fonda as the only juror believing the boy might be innocent, the other 11 swing back and forth as they talk and fight it out in the hot Summer jury room. A unanimous guilty vote will be the electric chair for this young boy. Lee J. Cobb has a very strong performance here. This really is a must see, particulary in this day and age of crime drama and forensics.
