I watched this based on "Povertyrowpictures'" review....
....which is so opposite reality as to be intentionally misleading.
"Juror" is NOT noir.
It IS a poorly-written B "mystery", with little of that, but plenty of under- and over-acting.
You can't even call it a pot-boiler because it never catches fire.
The only reason it's "rarely seen" on TV these days is that only TCM would show it. (But you'll never see Osborne or Mankiewicz introducing it.)
With the exception of classics like "The Wizard of Oz", "Gone With the Wind" and "It's a Wonderful Life", no network today will broadcast movies over 30 years old in order to attract that all-important 18-35 demographic.
This clunker has nothing in common with "Stranger On The Third Floor" and it's an insult to say it's a twist on "And Then There Were None."
"Juror" was just a paycheck for Budd Boetticher, who moved on to direct and team with Randolph Scott for some truly great 1950s westerns.
Watch them, not this.
