SIDNEY LUMET’S UNPARALLELED TRIAL DRAMA STARRING HENRY FONDA

ONE OF THE TEN MOST POPULAR FILMS OF ALL TIME, ACCORDING TO IMDB.COM!

12 Angry Men, by SIDNEY LUMET (Network), may be the most radical big-screen courtroom drama in cinema history. A behind-closed-doors look at the American legal system as riveting as it is spare, the iconic adaptation of Reginald Rose’s teleplay stars HENRY FONDA (Young Mr. Lincoln) as the initially dissenting foreman on a jury of white men ready to pass judgment on a Puerto Rican teenager charged with murdering his father. What results is a saga of epic proportions that plays out in real time over ninety minutes in one sweltering room. Lumet’s electrifying snapshot of 1950s America on the verge of change is one of the great feature-film debuts.

SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES:

  • New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Frank Schaffner’s 1955 television version, with an introduction by Ron Simon, director of the Paley Centre for Media Studies
