The play 12 Angry Men is one of the greatest plays I’ve seen. I read
the novel and saw both movies but my favorite was the Broadway play we
saw as a class. The play was so alive and made me really feel like I
was in the jury. The play was about a young man on trial for the
murder of his father. The play showed how one man didn’t give up in
what he believed to be true. The play also showed a powerful leader
who fought till the end.
The play was about 12 jurors coming to the same verdict. It was
eleven to one in favor of guilty. Only one juror stood up to the
eleven because of what he believed. He felt the evidence wasn’t
strong enough against the young man to convict him of

In the film 12 angry men, 12 jurors are put in a room to discuss a first degree murder case. Each one has a very different characteristic than the next, but each contribute to the stories plot line equally. Each juror can be classified as the average “every day” person; the silent but analytical, the loud and stubborn or the mediator. The one juror that is more like myself is Juror #11. I find myself to be most like him because he is unbiased, empathetic and is analytic.
Juror #11 seems to be an excellent juror because he is unbiased, about both the other juror’s opinions and the case. He is also concerned about finding the truth to the whole case and not just leaving as soon as possible to

inferred that there was something about him and other slum kids who belong to particular ethnic groups that make them “rotten.” These types of attributions are internal which perpetuates a guilty verdict. In addition to the slum kid characterization, another juror agreed with that notion along with that kids today have no sense of respect towards morality. A final example is when one of the jurors stated that if he (the boy) went back to get the knife, even if it may have incriminate him, he must have covered up the evidence, rendering him guilty.
In conclusion, the movie “Twelve Angry Men” illuminates many social psychology concepts, all of which allow for critical analysis and provide a

12 Angry Men: Juror #8 is the Most Important JurorJuror #8 was the most important juror in the play Twelve Angry Men for a number of reasons. The first reason is that when all the other jurors voted guilty without even thinking about their decisions, Juror #8 suggested that they talk about it before jumping to conclusions. Even when some of the other jurors got mad and started yelling at him, he stayed calm and tried to work things out in a mature fashion. The second reason is that he convinced Juror #9 to change his vote to not guilty. This was an important step because it paved the way for the other jurors to change their minds also. The third reason is Juror #8 re-enacted scenes from the

At first, all of the twelve jurors believe that he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, except for one, who believes that they owe the boy more than five minutes in deciding if he lives or not. The man who does not believe that the boy is guilty explains his views to the rest of the jurors and is ridiculed by them. An old man later sees where he is going with his reasoning and when the next vote is done, he also votes innocent. The jurors

In our society today citizens play a vital role in the legal system by serving as jury. A jury is a sworn body of people convened to render an impartial verdict (a finding of fact on a question) officially submitted to them by a court, or to set a penalty or judgment (Wikipedia). 12 citizens are selected to serve as jury on a particular trial. In the movie, “12 Angry Men”, 12 ordinary citizens were called to serve as jury in a case to decide the verdict of a murder trial. I’m choosing these three jurors on my legal team based on their character and contribution during the jury trial as portrayed in the movie.

because like juror eight said, he wasn't getting anything out of it so there was no point for him to make a strong argument. As the jury, they were responsible for impartially evaluating the facts presented and for applying the law to these facts as the judge instructed them. These combined efforts bring about the fair and impartial administration of justice in the courtroom.12 Angry Men makes its point that only reason and fact have a place in the courtroom. With a room full of imperfect, prejudiced and unsure men, the term reasonable doubt comes into play. In a criminal case, like this, the state has the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed a crime. A

Twelve Angry Men is a classic movie depicting how one determined leader can alter an entire crowd. Through dedication, curiosity, and the pursuit for the truth he is able to persuade a group of twelve to second guess even themselves. Within this heterogynous group are a dozen different personalities - some of which were leaders and most of which were not.
The strongest leader in this movie by far is the Architect in the White Suit. Right off from the beginning at the original vote the Architect stated clearly his position in the matter. Against the rest of the group he strongly held his ground and fought for what he believed. Most people in his position would

This report is on a movie called, “12 Angry Men.” The movie is about 12 men that are the jury for a case where a young man is being accused of killing his father. A major conflict that is very obvious is the disagreement on whether the young boy was guilty or innocent. After court when all of the men sat down to begin their discussion Courtney B. Vance (#1) Took charge and respectfully was now the leader. He asked what everyone’s votes were and all of the men except for Jack Lemmon (#8) voted the young man was guilty. Because Jack was the odd one that chose differently than the rest of the men, all of the other Jures, were defensive about the evidence just because they were all so

Throughout the juries dilleration, one man exhibits all of the qualities of leadership. This man is juror number 8 played by Henry Fonda. Fonda not only exhibits the the 10 qualities of a leader but he uses these qualities to lead the entire jury to a vote of not guilty (Fonda & Lumet, 1957).
Early on in the film Fonda shows the first quality of leadership vision. Vision can be defined as the leaders ability to know what is needed and how what is needed can be achieved (book). In the case of 12 Angry Men, Henry Fonda has a vision that he and the other jurors have the

His alibi is that he went to the movies. However, a knife, similar to a knife that he bought, is found protruding from the victim. The witnesses included an old man who claims that he heard the boy say "I'm going to kill you" only seconds before he heard a thud, which he assumes was the father's body falling to the floor. This witness further claims that after he walked to the front door of his apartment and saw the boy running down the staircase.

Review 2.12 Angry MenPlay by Reginald RosePerformed at the Scott Theatre, 7th March 2004A Masterson/Assembly Theatre ProductionDirected by Guy MastersonDirector Guy Masterson's adaptation of Reginald Rose's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, 12 Angry Men, is a surprisingly engaging and high-quality production considering the cast's inexperience; the issues it raises remain topical fifty years after it was written. The play explores the enduring themes of prejudice, stereotypes, people's convictions and preconceptions. It forces the audience to question their own views, their moral standing and how they would act in a similar situation.Set on the hottest day of the year in New York in 1957, 12

Both directors chose different actors, camera angles, and lighting, but the essence of the film stays the same. Each film also is greatly influenced by the time period in which they were made. Each time period is reflected in many ways throughout the story of ?12 Angry Men?, the same deep message can be pulled from each version due to the vast similarities and differences in each.The action in this play is that of a tense and tight because of the seriousness of the case at hand.

In the 1957 classic 12 Angry Men, group dynamics are portrayed through a jury deliberation. Group dynamics is concerned with the structure and functioning of groups as well as the different types of roles each character plays. In the film, twelve men are brought together in a room to decide whether a boy is guilty of killing his father. The personality conflicts, the joint effort and the functioning of several minds together to search for the truth are just a few characteristics of group dynamics at work. The whole spectrum of humanity is represented in this movie, from the bigotry of Juror No.10 to the coldly analytical No.4. Whether they brought good or bad qualities to the jury room

This video is about a group of 12 different men who are in a jury to determine whether or not a boy is guilty of murder. Even though before each of these jurors listened to how the case was explained, they still each had their own opinions on how it actually happened. When they began juror number 8 took his stand to say not guilty. This started the conflict between each of the jurors. Everyone wanted to argue that he was definitely guilty because of what they heard in the courtroom. Juror 8 made used some valid reasoning to convince juror 9 that the boy could possibly have been not guilty. Everyone else still continues to argue that the boy is guilty. Eventually with more reasoning others

They have to 'do their duty', they have to reach a consenus decision, so they are forced to have a dialogue with an extreme diverse set of people.Why conflict arises?When they perform a preliminary vote, they find out that one juror think the accused is not guilty 'beyond reasonable doubts'. The other 11 jurors are surprised and then quite angry that HF does not see the 'obvious' guilt in the case. Conflict arise because of a different understanding of the reality, of different personal situations (and prejudices) and backgrounds.

The purpose of this essay is to examine the movie content to display the groupthink symptoms in place. Groupthink consists of eight major factors that occur during the film's scenes, as the twelve men debate a premeditated murder court case. All of the factors continue to rise as the jury discusses the young man's fate. During the film, a unanimous vote must be reached, despite this one

. The fight over guilt or innocence is bound to bring out personal agendas and biases, this is no different. Although some were decided on bigotry, hatred, or just plain uninterest in the case, two votes stood out as dignified votes (Not saying they were the only ones), those of Juror 9 and Juror 11. They voted on what they ultimately thought was right and refused to see a man that could have been innocent thrown into the chair. They show how important it truly is to have integrity.WORK CITED PAGE* - Rose, Reginald 12 ANGRY MEN, Dramatic Publishing Company 1954 - Page 25, NINE** - Rose, Reginald 12 ANGRY MEN, Dramatic Publishing Company 1954 - Page 28, NINE*** - Rose, Reginald 12 ANGRY MEN, Dramatic Publishing Company 1954 - Page 44, ELEVEN

Legal dramas provide audiences the opportunity to enter the world of the courtroom in addition to dramatized emotions as reflected by the characters (typically the lawyer and juries) of the film. The Post-Classical era film 12 Angry Men (Sidney Lumet, 1957) and the Post-Modernist film A Time to Kill (Joel Schumacher, 1996) consist of a goal-driven protagonist finding the truth and meaning in societal paradoxes while overcoming strong adversity. However, the legal drama genre shift between the Post-Classical and Post-Modernist eras (as seen in the two films) from a character-driven genre to an expository-character genre is attributed to the paranoia brought on by forces such as McCarthyism

At the beginning of “12 Angry Men” the judge says to the jury “One man is dead, the life of another is at stake. I urge you to deliberate thoughtfully and honestly,” this is putting the verdict completely on the jury. If any reasonable doubt is at hand they jury must confirm a verdict of not guilty.
Therefore, the conflict begins. The men agree on taking a preliminary vote, the end total was eleven guilty and one not guilty. The ending of the vote leaves the men in a conflict of convincing one man against eleven. Right of the bat Juror #3, George C. Scott, gets in a query with Juror #8, Jack Lemmon, which creates another conflict right there. We see throughout the movie that Juror #3

Twelve Angry Men, is a play written by Reginald Rose. The play is about the process of individuals and a court case, which is determining the fate of a teenager. It presents the themes of justice, independence and ignorance. Rose emphasises these three themes through the characters and the dialogue. Justice is the principle of moral rightness or equity. This is shown through juror number eight who isn’t sure whether or not the boy is actually innocent or guilty, but he persists to ask questions and convinces the other jurors to think about the facts first. Independence is shown through both juror number three and ten. They both believe that the defendant is guilty until they both realise

The jurors had several conflicts in disagreeing with each other and it didn't help that they would shout over one another. The very first conflict is when juror 8 voted not guilty against the 11 guilty votes. The other 11 jurors don't seem to want to hear this man out; they don't want to hear why he has voted not guilty. Some of these men, jurors 3 and 7, just want to get this case over with so they can get on with their lives. They don't think it is imperative enough to look over the evidence and put themselves in the place of the defendant. They get upset with this man and try to get him to vote guilty.

They took a vote, and as expected, everyone voted guilty. It was an open and shut case. All the evidence was there. It was clear the boy committed the crime.

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I-- / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference" (Frost "The Road Not Taken" 18-20). Two great pieces of literature, Frost's poem and Reginald Rose's play 12 Angry Men, treat the theme of making difficult decisions with openness and honesty. In "The Road Not Taken," a man walks along a road in a "yellow wood." He comes to a fork in the road and must decide which path to take. In the end, he picks the road that not many people would have taken, "the one less traveled by." That choice made all the difference in his life. The characters in 12 Angry Men also must choose a path. Their path is marked by unreliable witnesses

In the text of the play, we can find examples of many of these characteristics of juror six and even more that were not given to us by the author.The first, and most obvious attribute about his personality is seen in the play but cannot be found in words.

An exploration of selected texts, Huckleberry Finn (HF) by Twain, Wild Cat Falling (WCF) by Johnson and Twelve Angry Men (TAM) by Rose, reveal common themes that are of universal interest. All texts raise the issue of racial prejudice. In HF Twain uses the naïve narrator, Huck, to reveal the racial discrimination that is a socially disease. Similarly, in WCF, Johnson criticises the discrimination of the whites towards the Aborigines. It is clear that all composers are critical of the racial attitude of many prejudiced people in society. Another common theme is injustice. However, this theme varies according to the text. In HF and WCF the injustice is evident towards the black race. In

The boy is convicted of murdering his father and has the probability of the death penalty. The 12 jurors go to the conference room to discuss it with one another they have a vote. The vote is to go around the room and each juror verbally states “guilty” or “non-guilty.” After the vote, 11 jurors vote guilty of charge, while a lone juror votes non-guilty which causes great conflict with the other 11 jury members.

The movie "Twelve Angry Men" is about a young man who is accused of stabbing his father to death. The twelve jurors have to decide whether the defendant is guilty or innocent. If the young man is found guilty, there is a mandatory death sentence (the jury needs to be unanimous in their decision). At the preliminary vote, eleven of the twelve jurors vote the young man guilty. Henry Fonda is the only one who voted the accused as not guilty because he doesn't want to send the defendant to the death penalty without discussing it. Throughout the movie, Henry uses various styles of leadership in which I will discuss further in the following section.Question 1:At the beginning, Henry uses the

Some have been known to look past these cases such as Reginald Rose’s book Twelve Angry Men. The play has been shown that one voice can change the thoughts of many by getting past the first layer and breaking it down to their inner person.

The co-existence of two political ideologies, at the same place and time, restricts the prosperity of an ultimate form of justice from which the citizens benefit. Instead, the legal system became a puppet controlled by the strings of the most dominant ideology. 12 Angry Men explicitly shows the ideal “American” man, a well-education ed capitalist, tolerant of those less-privileged communist inhabitants.

Jurors have the opportunity to hear what each other have to say about the case, whereas a judge cannot have a second opinion and must rely on themselves entirely. In the film 'Twelve Angry Men' the jurors share different experiences that they have had and try to relate to the case as humans, not simply as judges. Consultation is a big advantage in the jury system.Another advantage of a jury trial is that it offers an extremely thorough review and analysis of
