How important is the heat in Twelve Angry Men?
It is open to interpretation, however i feel that it has little importance. It is just a ploy by the author to generate side conversation to add to the story and detract from the focus of the story. It could also be interpreted as a comparison of the tension felt within the room and the warmth resonating from outside, or maybe a longing to go outside by some of the characters is shown by this heat such as the man with the tickets wishing to leave to get off to where he needs to be. Its up to you, there is no way to be wrong in an interpretation so just go with whatever you think it is, or use one of the interpretations i provided.

The climax is when juror #9 explains to the rest that the woman across the street couldn't have seen the crime just casually looking out her window from bed without her glasse…s. (cuz no one wears their glasses to bed.) Previously, juror #4 said that her testimony was good evidence, but after #9 disproves this, only #3 is left voting guilty. This is the climax because at the beginning of the play, all but one (#8) of the jurors vote guilty. But at this point, all but one vote not guilty (#3).
Ultimately they deduce through process of elimination that the evidence against the accused is entirely circumstantial and they therefore under the constitution, cannot find h…im guilty of the crime charged against him. That is the overall ending. It is a glimpse into a day of 12 strangers having to work together for a mutual end and conflicting but overall coming to resolve.

There have always been twelve jurors on any jury panels that I know of. Does something give you the impression there should be any less? I believe twelve individuals would be …able to come up with the appropriate verdict much better than six. I only say that because I realize some cases only employ six to eight jurors. But, not in Capital cases!
