Trivia

Screenwriter Reginald Rose updated his own 43-year-old teleplay, racially integrating the cast of jurors for the first time. When asked in an interview why he didn't cast some of the jurors as women, he jokingly (but accurately) quipped, "Then the title would have to be changed to '12 Angry Persons,' and it wouldn't be as effective."

When #8 (Jack Lemon) takes a cough drop and starts talking again, there is a shot of #2 (Ossie Davis) putting the box back in his shirt pocket. A few seconds later, he puts it into his shirt pocket again. See more »

Jury duty will never be the same again!!
9 January 2000 | by (Allentown, Pa) – See all my reviews

"12 Angry Men '97" is one of the few examples that a remake can be just as great as the original. This version of the 1957 drama is awesome. It had the same tension and verbal action as its predessor, but with more familiar characters and even color! Jack Lemmon replaces Henry Fonda as the good juror #8, the late great George C. Scott succeeds Lee J. Cobb as the hate-filled juror #3, and Mykelti Williamson takes a really good turn as the nasty juror #10 (he's sure as hell not looking for "shrimp" in this flick, if you know what I mean! And check out his cool hat! He looks like a younger Jim Brown). Each member of this jury take their tolls as they all argue over the life of a teen who is accused of murdering his father with switchblade. And each of them would like to leave the stuffy jury room!



Unlike the original, "12 Angry Men '97" is more modernized; for example, instead of electric fans, an air conditioner cools down the hot temperature of the room, and the jury isn't an all-white ensemble, but a multi-ethnic group. That's why I like this version better because there isn't a lot of racial boundaries to go over here, unlike in the original.
