Deliberate mistake: When Henry Fonda decides to recreate the old witness' ability to get to the door in 15 seconds, he asks another juror to time his walk. The scene never cuts away, but the juror who times it says it took 41 seconds when in reality it takes exactly 31 seconds, you can time it.
Juror 8 (Henry Fonda) convinces the jury that the accused isn't guilty. The last one to change his vote to Not Guilty is Juror 3 who breaks down and reveals personal prejudice against the accused because in the past he had a falling out with his son. The jurors leave the courthouse. Juror 8 and Juror 9 (the elderly man) reveal their names to be Davis and McArdle (respectively). They say goodbye to one another and go their separate ways.
Juror #3: That business before when that tall guy, what's-his-name, was trying to bait me? That doesn't prove anything. I'm a pretty excitable person. I mean, where does he come off calling me a public avenger, sadist and everything? Anyone in his right mind would blow his stack. He was just trying to bait me.
Juror #4: He did an excellent job.
Question: Did they ever look at the hole in his pocket that the knife supposedly slipped out of?
