    Juror #4 (E.G. Marshall) changes his vote when Juror #9 (Joseph Sweeney) convinces him that one of the witnesses wore eyeglasses, and most likely did not wear them while she was in bed, during the time of the murder.
    A Puerto Rican youth is on trial for murder, accused of knifing his father to death. The twelve jurors retire to the jury room, having been admonished that the defendant is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Eleven of the jurors vote for conviction, each for reasons of his own. The sole holdout is Juror #8, played by Henry Fonda. As Fonda persuades the weary jurors to re-examine the evidence, we learn the backstory of each man. Juror #3 (Lee J. Cobb), a bullying self-made man, has estranged himself from his own son. Juror #7 (Jack Warden) has an ingrained mistrust of foreigners; so, to a lesser extent, does Juror #6 (Edward Binns). Jurors #10 (Ed Begley) and #11 (George Voskovec), so certain of the infallibility of the Law, assume that if the boy was arrested, he must be guilty. Juror #4 (E.G. Marshall) is an advocate of dispassionate deductive reasoning. Juror #5 (Jack Klugman), like the defendant a product of "the streets," hopes that his guilty vote will distance himself from his past. Juror #12 (Robert Webber), an advertising man, doesn't understand anything that he can't package and market. And Jurors #1 (Martin Balsam), #2 (John Fiedler) and #9 (Joseph Sweeney), anxious not to make waves, "go with the flow." The excruciatingly hot day drags into an even hotter night; still, Fonda chips away at the guilty verdict, insisting that his fellow jurors bear in mind those words "reasonable doubt." A pet project of Henry Fonda's, Twelve Angry Men was his only foray into film production; the actor's partner in this venture was Reginald Rose, who wrote the 1954 television play on which the film was based. Carried over from the TV version was director Sidney Lumet, here making his feature-film debut. A flop when it first came out (surprisingly, since it cost almost nothing to make), Twelve Angry Men holds up beautifully when seen today. It was remade for television in 1997 by director William Friedkin with Jack Lemmon and George C. Scott.

    Juror 4 is Boromir's Grandfather "One does not simply witness crimes without glasses when evidence of needing glasses is present."

    In my opinion 4th juror (EG Marshall) has high intelligence + lack of emotions/empathy, while Henry Fonda's character has High intelligence + emotions, them two are major "players" here, that doesn't mean 4th juror was a villain, no, but he needed cold facts, anyway everyone was brilliant here, but those two are in my opinion leaders of intelligent discussion here, both with high intelligence divided in my opinion by lack of emotions of EG Marshall character, and (Fonda's character) high intelligent guy + empathy/emotions. Brilliant.

    Lee J. Cobb was a great actor, but the character he played in this film was absolute BUTT, wasn't he ??

  • Gambit08

    Apart from Henry Fonda, Juror #4 is my favorite, he’s a hardass, but unlike the other antagonistic jurors he has a disciplined logic about him, he acknowledges evidence unfavorable to his own stance and doesn’t dismiss evidence out of hand that goes against his views on the case.

  • Midna Lazuli
    Midna Lazuli 2 months ago +5

    The fact that Juror 4 is the only one who doesn't allow emotion to in any way effect his decision and only goes with the stone-hard facts really shows his dedication to the case, and his willingness to change his verdict when he's convinced that he's wrong and not ramble on into a senseless argument is something just about every other antagonistic juror lacks.

  • Lord Ignis Destroyer of Thots

    I can't believe how stupid I was, but back when I first saw this movie (granted, I was only 12 but still) I thought juror #9 was trying to convince everyone that the reason why juror #4 and the woman had the same marks on their noses was because juror #4 was actually dressed up as the woman, and he just wore a wig lmao.

    these men have damn good eye sight; I don't know for sure, but I'm sure there's a reasonable distance between the witness and the jury and the marks glasses make aren't that big. The boys have eyes like hawks.

    Thing is the defendant was probably guilty. Each point of evidence was compromised in sequence, but doubt doesn't work that way. Juror 8 (Peter Fonda) erred in thinking that each point of evidence could be demolished in sequence. Even if doubt is sown the evidence remains unless the evidence is destroyed by a contrary fact.
    When all five points of evidence were analysed and doubt found in each one the correct way forward them would be to consider if all five make up a reasonable doubt, as all five doubts have to run consecutively. If each was a coin flip 50/50 then for all five points of evidence to be wrong is 1:32. If each was considered a 1:10 chance of being at fault the chance all five were at fault would be 1:100,000.
    Juror 8 helped sow doubt but the law doesn't deal in absolutes it deals in reasonable presentation, on balance all five pieces of evidence, while not one was certain were enough so that the doubt was not a reasonable doubt. I would have voted guilty.

    So the woman was wearing glasses. It’s been a long time does that mean she was lying about seeing the killing?

    • DarkSendo94
      DarkSendo94 4 months ago +1

      she saw someone kill the guy but there is no definite way to tell if she really did see the boy do it
      its probably one of the best things about this movie
      the evidence is so wonky but as laid out by the jurors there is still always the possibility the boy did do it in the end
      and was smart enough to get away with it.

      She claimed to have seen the killing. However, she most likely had glasses. No one goes to bed with glasses on. So, when the “killing” happened, she didn’t have her glasses on. That means, she only thinks she saw the killing but isn’t sure. She does not think she lied, but there is no way to tell if that truly happened.

    You guys do realize Juror 9, not Juror 8, was the hero of the film? Juror 8 gets all the spotlight for being the lone dissenter at the start and starring Henry Fonda, but it is Juror 9 who moves the plot forward. If it weren't for Juror 9's "not guilty" vote during the secret ballot scene or him noticing Juror 4's nose marks, that boy likely would've died and Juror 8 would've definitely lost the debate. If anything, Juror 8 should at least feel grateful that Juror 9 saved his case multiple times.

      That’s probably why the filmmakers had those two jurors share the last scene at the end of the film.

      Jessy Manuel agree 100%... the fact that only their names are revealed at the end and the film closes with them (not to mention that they seem to be the only ones to become friends and presumably stay in touch after) shows they were the heroes but for me Fonda edges it as the mist significant juror

    The stock broker (the 4th juror) is my favorite character in this whole movie. Because he's antagonistic to the very end, but at the same time unemotional and collected, unlike most of the other "villains". Only logic and facts are able to change his mind, and they do in the end. I wish people arguing would be more like him.

    • The Dimensioneer
      The Dimensioneer 2 months ago

      He was also a good contrast to the main "villains" 3 and 10. While they were mostly fueled by emotion, 4 was fueled by reason and logic, but it takes both reason and emotion to function as a human being.

    • Andrea Lopez
      Andrea Lopez 2 months ago +1

      He’s not really an antagonist persay, but I see what you mean. He is on the opposing side for the majority of the movie. Number 3 is the real antagonist. He’s the only one who never truly bases his decision on the facts, and is always either denying, insulting, criticizing, or ridiculing all the other men’s opinions. He’s solely based on emotion. Number 4 is a smart man and is willing to listen to reason. I say he and Fonda (number 8) are the most logical of the bunch. I can see why he’s your favorite too. He seems like a decent man who cares about the facts, but isn’t perfect (just like the rest of the men). And it’s admirable to see him acknowledge his fault and vote “not guilty” at the end. No bitterness. No attitude. Right on!

      He had prejudices and he didn't hide them. He believed in logic and reason and listened to what they told him. And he was willing to listen to reason when it presented itself. Sounds like a pretty decent fellow, a good man with a few gray spots just like the rest of us.
      Juror 4 is one of my favorite characters in the movie.

      Well everyone is a potential menace to society in some way, but slums have a higher chance of being the violent type due to the harsher lifestyle people living there are forced to bear, often coupled with a deadbeat absentee father.
      People who have everything handed to them are more likely to become greedy jerks who manipulate the system to their benefit even if it's to everyone else's detriment.

  • ZukoHalliwell

    The first time I saw the movie, during this scene at around 0:40, that was the moment when I became convinced the boy isn't guilty. I've worn glasses for years, and I can tell you that, if the woman was lying in bed trying to fall asleep, I guarantee she was not wearing her glasses.

    • Humbers
      Humbers 2 years ago +1

      +ZukoHalliwell Fair point. I'm still not sure about whether he did it either. I'd lean towards thinking he did commit the crime, but obviously there wasn't enough evidence to condemn him

    • ZukoHalliwell
      ZukoHalliwell 2 years ago +8

      +Humbers I know. You're absolutely right. I didn't realize that at the time, but I do now.
      I would like to point out, though, that I didn't say I was convinced at that moment that he was "innocent", I said I was convinced he was "not guilty". That being said, I do believe he was innocent, but it is possible he wasn't.

    • Humbers
      Humbers 2 years ago +25

      ZukoHalliwell It's not a case of this point making him 'Innocent', but giving the jury reasonable doubt as it voids the witnesses testimony.
      Even at the end, it's still possible the boy had committed the murder, however it's about only convicting them if the case is 100% certain

    my favorite part about this scene was how number 4 knew he was wrong, but did not try to raise his voice and protest like number 3. he's cold but very wise.

    • SliceOfDog
      SliceOfDog Year ago +12

      I love this film as a character study - every character has such a distinct behaviour. If you watch Juror 4 throughout the film, he so obviously doesn't like the bullishness of Juror 3, even though they agree on most of the issues for the vast majority of the film. One of my favourite moments is where they're both at the watercooler.
      Juror 3: I mean, where does he come off calling me a public avenger, sadist and everything? Anyone in his right mind would blow his stack. He was just trying to bait me.
      Juror 4: He did an excellent job.
      He holds onto his opinion until he's convinced otherwise, and then he unemotionally alters his view to the one he believes has the most proof.
      And performed excellently! 2:06 in this video is fantastic, you can practically see his opinion shifting in his head, as he finally changes his mind to not-guilty.

      matthew david jarvis 2 years ago +18

      Number 4 was quite cold, but analytical, fair, and polite. And above all, he allowed the others to disagree with him without shouting or losing his temper. And at the end of it all, he realised his mistake and accepted that he was wrong, like a proper man.Number 12 was a bit of a joker, like number 7. He was also one of the weaker ones, changing his mind the most times. But unlike number 7, he cared about the outcome of the trial, and was willing to stay there for as long as it took. He was also quite respectful towards the others, despite disagreeing with them for quite a long time. Yes, he played noughts and crosses with number 3 near the beginning, which was pretty stupid and very disrespectful towards number 8 (Davis), but I think he knew that he was in the wrong, and he improved from that point on.
