Storyline

The jurors in a murder trial take their seats in a small, drab room to decide the defendant's fate. At first, all the men vote guilty bar one, who still has many questions not answered in court. Through theories and re-enactments, others change their minds, but one man is adamant that he'll never change his vote and won't listen to reason. Written by WesternOne

Trivia

For many years this episode was thought to have been lost. The Museum of Television and Radio (now the Paley Center) had only the first 30 minutes of the hour-long program on a kinescope provided by CBS - the only version CBS had. After nearly 30 years of searching, a copy of the complete program was found in 2003 by filmmaker Joseph Consentino, who was working on a documentary about noted defense attorney Robert Leibowitz (Leibowitz reported on the Charles A. Lindbergh baby kidnapping for the NY radio station WHN) and found a copy of the show in the archives maintained by the children of Leibowitz, Robert Leibowitz and Marjorie Leibowitz Finch. Samuel Leibowitz requested and received a commercial-free kinescope copy of "Twelve Angry Men" from CBS shortly after it aired because of his interest in legal issues. The Leibowitz children donated the kinescope to the museum and it had a re-premiere in May 2003. See more »

Goofs

Right after the "you're a very smart young fellow" line, when the frame changes, watch the far right side of the screen. A large camera with the CBS "eye" logo is visible in plain sight. See more »

As the first production, considering the time alloted, this version is a worthy precursor to the film.
2 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 'Studio One' production, long thought lost forever, was found among the personal effects of famed defense attorney Sam Liebowitz. It differs from the 1957 film in a number of ways. At a length of about 50 minutes, it cannot approach the depth of detail or character development that the film does. That said, this production contains a number of good things. First, the performance of Robert Cummings as juror #8. 'Love That Bob' aside, this was a much underrated dramatic actor. His sensitive portrayal depicts a man less sure of his feelings than Henry Fonda in the film. Second, Franchot Tone as juror #3. Also an underrated thespian, Tone lacks the explosive, force of nature personality brought to the big screen by Lee J. Cobb in the same role. Still, Tone's performance is totally believable. Joseph Sweeney and George Voskovic perform the same roles (and quite well) in both versions.
