Summary A behind-closed-doors look at the American legal system as riveting as it is spare, the iconic adaptation of Reginald Rose's teleplay stars Henry Fonda as the initially dissenting member of a jury of white men ready to pass judgment on a Puerto Rican teenager charged with murdering his father. What results is a saga of epic proportions that plays out in real time over ninety minutes in one sweltering room. One of the most radical big-screen courtroom dramas in cinema history.
Contents Special features: Schaffner's 1955 television version, with an introduction by Ron Simon, director of the Paley Center for Media Studies; "12 angry men": from television to the big screen, a video essay by film scholar Vance Kapley; archival interviews with Lumet; new interview about the director with writer Walter Bernstein; new interview with Simon about television writer Reginald Rose; new interview with cinematographer John Bailey; teleplay Tragedy in a Temporary town; original theatrical trailer.
