This work is best known as the film that [[TropeCodifier popularized]] the RogueJuror trope. Though it was not the first work to use it, it was the first to receive widespread critical acclaim. It's a classic of American cinema and recommended watching- especially because most of the other works on the Rogue Juror page reference it either directly or indirectly.

According to the American Film Institute, it's the second best courtroom drama movie in history, after ''Film/ToKillAMockingbird'''s film adaptation. It received three UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nominations, for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay, but didn't win any of them. As of August 2015 it's ranked fifth on {{Website/IMDb}}'s top 250 films of all time, as voted on by users.
