In Twelve Angry Men what is the cause of Juror number three's anger towards the boy?
In Act Two of the movie 'Twelve Angry Men - What causes conflict between juror number three and juror number five in the opening scene?
Juror #3 stands face-to-face with Juror #8, to demonstrate the stabbing action taken by the young defendant. But Juror #5, who has had experience with switchblade knife fights… in his childhood neighborhood, dispels the theory citing the positioning of the blade had to be on a downward angle. Juror #5: "Anyone who's ever used a switch knife wouldn't handle it any other way."
juror number two,eight ,five,nine,eleven and six.
The reason all the other jurors turned their backs on Juror #10 (played by Ed Begley) was because whenever he takes to voicing an opinion he constantly criticizes minorities i…n a hateful manner and with an obviously racist attitude. At one point in the movie, he is actually left standing there babbling away to nobody in the middle of the room.
Juror Number Ten (played by Ed Begley) is garage owner who simmers with anger, bitterness and racist bigotry and needs the support of others to reinforce his stance. He is nas…ty, repellent, intolerant, reactionary and accusative. This character segregates the world into 'Us' and 'Them' categories.
Juror #8 (Henry Fonda) dispels the old man's testimony by posing a question to fellow jurors: "How could the old man in the apartment downstairs distinctly hear the threat an…d the body hit the floor a second later, while the woman across the street was viewing the killing through the last two cars, when an El train was making a deafening noise as it passed?" Juror #9 (Joseph Sweeney) answers with an opinion: "Maybe...The seam of his jacket was split under the shoulder...to come to court like that...He was a very old man in a torn jacket and he walked very slowly to the stand. He was dragging his left leg and trying to hide it because he was ashamed. I think I know this man better than anyone here. This is a quiet, frightened, insignificant old man who has been nothing all his life - who has never had recognition - or his name in the newspapers. Nobody knows him. Nobody quotes him. Nobody seeks his advice after seventy-five years. Gentlemen, that's a very sad thing to be nothing. A man like this needs to be quoted, to be listened to, to be quoted just once - very important to him...He wouldn't really lie. But perhaps he made himself believe that he heard those words and recognized the boy's face."
Because he is a jilted father whose son had hit him in the face once during a verbal argument, and he has not seen or spoken to him since, causing him great pain coupled with …rage. So, the fact that this boy could kill his father is a loathsome thing to him, and he is bent on convicting the boy based on the flimsy evidence submitted.
Juror Number 9 was a quiet old man, polite, but firm in what opinions he had. He was the first to support Juror Number 8. He later made two very incisive points, about the ol…d man witness maybe seeing the trial as an opportunity to have people pay attention to him, and later when he noted that the lady witness had indentations on the sides of her nose indicative of glasses.
in the beginning of act 2, the 12 jurors learn that someone changed their vote from guilty to innocent. juror 3 demands to know who changed their vote so he yells at juror 5 b…ecause he thought he did it. it was actually juror 9
What admission does Juror 3 make that explains why he wanted this boy to be found guilty in the Twelve Angry Men?
He lost his relationship with his son.
Juror #3 was played by actor Lee J. Cobb. In addition to being in this film, he had a very extensive resume and had been in such films as On the Waterfront and The Exorcist am…ong many others.
Juror #12 Is: Superficial, easily-swayed, and easy-going; vacillating, lacks deep convictions or belief system; uses interesting analogies such as: "Run this idea up the fl…agpole and see if anybody salutes it."
Yes. He was the 6th juror to vote not guilty.
the first to change it is juror 9
The first vote was 11-1 against Henry Fonda. So all the others changed their vote.
1: High School Football Coach 2: Bank Teller 3: Owner of Messenger Service 4: Stock Broker 5: Never Stated 6: Painter 7: Salesman 8: Architect 9: Never Stated 10: Garage Owner… 11: Watch Maker 12: Advertising Executive
Jack Lemmon's character accuses Juror #3 as being a "sadist" when he proposes that 3 cares nothing for the facts of the case, and is bent on sending the kid to the chair for k…illing his father. It is reiterated throughout the film that 3 has more of a vendetta than the others in that he feels very negatively against a son being against a father, as this is something that had happened to 3 himself with his son, and he has yet to get over it.
