It is not a very original story
1 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The twelfth juror is the man who really had committed the murder, and is played by B.F. Wilson, who is also the author of the story. It is not a very original story, but gives a good chance of doing strong dramatic work, and in this case has an effective ending. Yet the early scenes, while done well, are not of really great interest. The acting is fair, Laura Sawyer plays her role, the romantic lead, finely. Jack Conway and Robert Grey, as the two rivals, show intelligence. The setting is in the orange country, and the photography is clear. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
