Darkness To Light...

Where Film Noir Lives...Too!

Darkness Before Dawn Or The Sunday Morning [Afternoon] Movie...H.Fonda, and Lee J.Cobb, in... "12 Angry Men..."

12 Angry Men is a 1957 American drama film adapted from a teleplay of the same name by Reginald Rose.[3][4] Directed by Sidney Lumet, the film tells the story of a jury made up of 12 men as they deliberate the guilt or acquittal of a defendant on the basis of reasonable doubt. In the United States (both then and now), a verdict in most criminal trials by jury must be unanimous.

The film is notable for its almost exclusive use of one set: with the exception of the film's opening, which begins outside on the steps of the courthouse followed by the jury's final instructions before retiring, a brief final scene on the courthouse steps, and two short scenes in an adjoining washroom, the entire movie takes place in the jury room. The total time spent outside of the jury room is three minutes out of the full 96 minutes of the movie.

 

12 Angry Men explores many techniques of consensus-building, and the difficulties encountered in the process, among a group of men whose range of personalities adds intensity and conflict. Apart from two of the jurors swapping names while leaving the courthouse, no names are used in the film: the defendant is referred to as "the boy" and the witnesses as the "old man" and "the lady across the street".

In 2007, 12 Angry Men was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[5]

In this character-driven tour-de-force, twelve men gather in a jury room to decide the fate of a young man on trial for murder. One juror who dissents from the widely-held belief that the boy is guilty slowly manages to convince the other jurors that the case may not be as clear cut as they at first believe. The all-star cast includes Martin Balsam, Lee J. Cobb, E.G. Marshall, Jack Klugman, Ed Begley, Jack Warden, and Henry Fonda. This striking half sheet shows light edge wear, a tiny nick in the upper right corner, corner bumps, and some light discoloration in the right border. In spite of these slight flaws, the poster presents very nicely, and will make a great addition to your collection. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.[THE FINAL BID...$896.25]
