To sit in deliberation with other members of the jury.

Juror 5 gets mad after the second vote, when Juror 3 accuses him of being soft and changing his vote. It turns out Juror 9 (the old man) was the one to change his vote.

After the Preliminary vote, the results were: Eleven voting in favor of Guilty and one hold-out (Juror #8) for Not Guilty.

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 #5's character (played by Jack Klugman) had experience with switchblade knife-fights in his childhood neighborhood.

Juror Number Nine, McCardle (played by Joseph Sweeney) is the oldest man on the jury. The soft-spoken, fair-minded, white-haired gentleman is thin, retiring and resigned, but has a resurgence of life during deliberations.

The law is accurate in the movie Twelve Angry Men as it relates to finding a Defendant "Guilty beyond reasonable doubt."

The director of the 1957 movie Twelve Angry Men was Sidney Lumet. Sidney Lumet also directed Dog Day Afternoon, Network, Serpico and Prince of The City.

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 in 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 #8 is the first and the only person to vote not guilty in the first round of voting. The role of this juror is played by Henry Fonda.

Juror #8 -played by Henry Fonda in the 1957 black-and-white version directed by Sidney Lumet- manages to persuade all 11 other jurors to find the defendant not guilty. And they leave the courthouse.

Juror #7 had a hidden agenda. He wanted the court case to be over and done with as fast as possible so that he could attend a ball game. He even went as far as to change his vote to not-guilty claiming he was "sick of all the talking." But what he really wanted was to speed up the proceedings.

In the film, 'Twelve Angry Men,' the accused's alibi for his whereabouts at the time of the murder was that he was at a movie theater, watching a double feature. Belief in his alibi was challenged when he could not remember the name of either of the films.

"Protagonist" might be a better word for Henry Fonda's role. He played Juror Number Eight, and his name was revealed at the end of the movie as "Davis". He was an architect, and originally, the lone dissenter who cast a vote of "not guilty" against 11 "guilty" votes.
