12 Angry Men

Deliberate mistake: When Henry Fonda decides to recreate the old witness's ability to get to the door in 15 seconds, he asks another juror to time his walk. The scene never cuts away, yet the juror who times it says it took 41 seconds when in reality it takes closer to 30.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Henry Fonda is recreating the testimony of the old man getting out of bed & walking down a hall, you can clearly see a shadow of the camera on the floor.

Visible crew/equipment: When Juror 8 is approaching Juror 4 following the revelation of the witness across the street's eyesight being put under question, as the camera moves in, its shadow is seen moving across the back of Juror 3. (01:28:55)

Juror #6: You think he's not guilty, huh?
Juror #8: I don't know. It's possible.

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.

Juror #11: I beg pardon.
Juror #10: "I beg pardon?" What are you so polite about?
Juror #11: For the same reason you are not: it's the way I was brought up.

Question: Am I correct that when Henry Fonda is questioning the E.G. Marshall character about his recent activities Marshall says that the night before he worked until 8:30 then went home? The trial was every day for the past several days.

Chosen answer: He was actually talking about the night before the last one. Trials, especially longer ones for serious crimes such as murder, are not usually on consecutive days...often there is a recess after the prosecution rests, and another after the defense, before closing arguments and the jury's deliberation. During those recesses, unless they are sequestered, the jury members would return to their normal lives (including work), and report back to the court when summoned.
