Funny that the basic story line was used in an episode of the Andy Griffith Show. Aunt Bee is the lone juror who believes the alleged burglar is innocent. The alleged burglar  was played by none other than Jack Nicholson. 

In the movie 12 Angry Men, the director had the jury room set get smaller as the story progresses to make the tension stronger. See if you notice that. 


@Still Stylish Lady  There have been several ripoffs.  Monk had an episode inspired by the film where Monk was the holdout juror.

Pearley, my parents took me to see the play 12 Angry Men. I am not sure how old I was, I guess early teens. We had seats so close to the stage. I felt pulled into the discussion. 

 

Yes, it is quite a movie too.

 

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

I've seen Diabolique many times (a favorite of my father's) and won't watch the whole film but I think I'll tune in to the fabulous, diabolical ending.

Lots of The Fugitive guests in this film besides Ed Begley! Ed Binns, John Fiedler, Jack Klugman, was Jack Warden in the TF? He's in this...

@Pearlee  - I just saw your post now and I don't think I have seen it before.   Even though I missed the first half hour I'll watch and try to figure out what is going on.

 

Thanks for the alert.

One of the best movies ever made. Incredible character study. I think it should be shown to jurors prior to the court case.....seeing how easily a guilty or not guilty verdict can be reached based on so many emotions rather than fact and procedure.

@grandma petes  No it shouldn't be shown. As I have pointed out in a previous discussion of this film and as Josh M pointed out last night, there was juror misconduct that should have resulted in a mistrial. That is, Fonda producing his own knife which was not in evidence. BIG NO-NO!
