The boy's motive for killing his father was due to the abuse and strained relationship between the two of them. His innocence was established in the end though.

who were the defendants in the movie Verdict

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.

Juror #8 (played by Henry Fonda).

Twelve Angry Men was first remade in 1957 as the famous movie.It was originally a teleplay in 1954.It was also remade in 1997, 2004, and 2006.

To sit in deliberation with other members of the jury.

To sit in deliberation with other members of the jury.

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.

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

An excellent example is one entitled "Twelve Angry Men."It was also done as a black and white movie featuring an all-star cast.

Well the first Angry Birds was not actually based on a movie but Angry Birds Rio was based on the movie Rio.

Rio the movie because the angry birds version is a "copy" of the movie.

Some differences between the play and the movie are that in the movie, there is a scene in the very beginning in the courtroom, and in the middle, a scene in the bathroom. I can't remember exactly, but in one of them, the boy is 19 years old, and in the other, he's 18 years old. In the movie, one of the jurors want to leave because he has tickets to a ball game, and in the play, he has theater tickets. I know there are some more, but it's been a while since I read/ watched this! Hope I helped! :)

There aren't any actors names in the book Twelve Angry Men (unless addressed as Juror 1, 2, 3, 4, etc).However, if you are wondering what the actors names are from the original cast of the 1957 movie Twelve Angry Men, here they are:Martin Balsam, Lee J. Cobb, John Fiedler, E.G. Marshall, Jack Clugman, Edward Binns, Jack Warden, Henry Fonda, Joseph Sweeney, Ed Begley, George Voskovec and Robert Webber.

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

Dr. Towler , Dr. Gruber and St. Catherines Hospital of Boston

Type your answer here... yes

The defendant was never shown; the focus was on the 12 man jury who had to determine his guilt or innocence. The whole movie was shot in the jury room and its adjacent bathroom.

The boy claimed he went to a movie about 11:30 pm, returning home at 3:10 am "to find his father dead and himself arrested'.

It will be in the year 2016.

in the movies there's some African American grown up in it but in the book it doesn't mention anything about a Afro-American. also the film has a black guy as a foreman instead of the white foreman in the play...

It was just to make a documentary. There was no ulterior motive.
