Best Answer

The 9th among the 12 Juror's is an old Man whose matured & impressive memory, the role played by Jack Warden decides to change his vote, because of the sane reasoning as put forth by the 7th Juror, played by Henry Fonda in support of the accused as not-guilty. Juror 9 changed his vote in favor of Juror 7 because of his stand which would put an 18 year old boy on Death Row by an unanimous decision of the 12 Jurors if voted guilty.

Therefore as a worldly-wise & keen observer of the proceedings in the Court, he weighs the pros & cons, deciding to vote in support of the accuse as not guilty, turning the vote count to 2 not-guilty against the majority 10 Jurors voting him guilty. There are several remakes, but the story & the characters r the same but with different actors. My Answer is based on Sidney Lumet's directorial debut with "12Angry Men" released in 1957. This Courtroom drama was adapted from a teleplay of the same name by Reginald Rose who co-produced and wrote the screenplay for the movie.

In the play 12 Angry Men How many times did they vote?

The first time it was at the beginning of the play and Juror #8 is the only one to raise his hand to vote "not guilty".The second time it was after they saw the knife and it was a secret ballot. Juror #8 said he was not going to vote and if there were 11 "guilty"s then Juror 8 would change his vote, but Juror 9 voted "not guilty".The third time was after Juror 8 reenacted the old man's walk down the hall and Juror #3's and Juror #8's little tussle. Jurors 2,5,6,11 vote "not guilty".The fourth time was after the knife scene and Juror #7 changes his vote because he was "sick of this whole thing". During this vote Jurors 1 and 12 change to "not guilty".The fifth time wasn't really a formal vote and it was after they demonstrated that the lady couldn't see without her glasses. Juror #8 asks "does anyone think there still is not a reasonable doubt?" and no on said anything except for Juror #3.The end of the play was when Juror #3 changed his vote.So 5 times.

Twelve Angry Men does not have a set protagonist or antagonist. It is referenced as a "gang drama." A gang drama's resolution occurs when everyone cooperates and comes to a general consensus. There is technically no protagonist, but the closest thing to it is Juror 8. He is arguing for the life of a boy that may or may not be guilty.

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 glasses.

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).
