    SIDNEY LUMET’S UNPARALLELED TRIAL DRAMA STARRING HENRY FONDA

    ONE OF THE TEN MOST POPULAR FILMS OF ALL TIME, ACCORDING TO IMDB.COM!

    12 Angry Men, by SIDNEY LUMET (Network), may be the most radical big-screen courtroom drama in cinema history. 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 (Young Mr. Lincoln) as the initially dissenting foreman on 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. Lumet’s electrifying snapshot of 1950s America on the verge of change is one of the great feature-film debuts.

    SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES:

    • New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
    • Frank Schaffner’s 1955 television version, with an introduction by Ron Simon, director of the Paley Centre for Media Studies
    • “12 Angry Men”: From Television to the Big Screen, a video essay by film scholar Vance Kapley comparing the Sidney Lumet and Schaffner versions
    • Archival interviews with Lumet
    • New interview about the director with writer Walter Bernstein

    • New interview with cinematographer John Bailey in which he discusses cinematographer Boris Kaufman

12 Angry Men

what can I say about this movie? I is without doubt one of the greatest movies ever made, the story of how 1 man in a jury of 12 fought against the others to prove that the young man on trail may be not guilty of the crime he is charged with. A cast of fantastic actors including, Henry Fonda, Lee J Cobb and a young Jack Klugman (Quincey) give top rate performances. An intriguing and flawless plot make this a watch movie that should be in every movie lovers top tens.
