Twelve Angry Men (1957)

Short Webography – Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose (1954 – 1957)

Coming to grips with 1950s America and developing a sense of individual justice and injustice in a time when “going with the flow”, “not making waves” and challenging “the system” were just not the things to do, “Twelve Angry Men” still speaks to current day audiences with its universal message of the victory of reason over prejudgement, apathy and bigotry, as well as the transformative power of dissent. The three (3) YouTube versions embedded below will give you a chance to compare (if you wish) a theatrical version, the 1957 film version and the original 1954 TV version:

Theatrical Version – The Delray Beach Playhouse, June 2012

Twelve Angry Men (1957) (With Subtitles)

Choosing the right sites to read can be difficult. Here for example is the original September 20, 1954 TV production:

Choose well and you gain, choose badly and you spend some time wondering why you came here!

Look at the links; they are in alphabetical order, but also look at the sites in terms of what they might indicate, i.e. Book Reviews, Historical or Geographical Background, Educational Sites, School Sites, VCE sites, YouTube, MP3, Interviews with Authors, etc. All can be very useful, but much depends on you and your interest(s) and how far you want to invest time in searching for your own meaning as opposed to treating this an an exercise in memory (i.e. a set of facts and events, rather than a set of meanings that reflect fictionally on (y)our world).

If you have read the play or film script and watched the movie version (or just as good) have seen a version of the play, make sure that you take notes, and then use the links below to build your knowledge and vocabulary.

Keep noting … there are no shortcuts!
