Home / Now Showing / The AC Presents 12 ANGRY MEN
Reginald Rose’s 1954 “Studio One” teleplay is brought to the screen by director Sidney Lumet (NETWORK, DOG DAY AFTERNOON) in his behind-the-camera debut. Henry Fonda produces and stars as Juror No. 8, the lone holdout in a racially charged jury deliberation. The all-male cast includes stunning performances by Jack Klugman, Lee J. Cobb (as Fonda’s No. 1 foil), E.G. Marshall, Robert Webber, Jack Warden and Ed Begley Sr. Nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director. A near-perfect film, a true American masterpiece, championed by wonderful characters and dialogue. Joseph Sweeney and Voskovec reprise their roles from the 1954 TV broadcast.
