* VindicatedByHistory: The critics in 1957 were [[CriticalDissonance rooting for]] Lumet's movie version, but the public wasn't interested and the movie failed at the box office. ''12 Angry Men'' has since earned a place in pop culture rivalled (aside from ''Film/ToKillAMockingbird'') by no other courtroom drama--plus the 88th spot on AFI's ''100 Years. . .100 Thrills'' list. No mean feat for a non-action adventure film.[[note]]For perspective, below this movie, among others, were ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood'' at #100 ''{{Film/Speed}}'' at #99, and ''{{Film/Braveheart}}'' at #91[[/note]]

*** Or has he already changed his mind about the guilty vote but is just unwilling to admit that due to his own issues?

** When Juror #4 refuses to change his vote near the end, does he honestly still think the defendant is guilty? Or is he merely doing it so that the process of proper deliberation, which Juror #8 started, is properly finished?

* RetroactiveRecognition: Juror #5 will be instantly familiar to anyone who's seen an episode of ''Series/{{Quincy}}''. Jack Klugman even gets to do a Quincy-style deduction years before the series was conceived, by pointing out the inconsistent nature of the knife wound. ''Series/TheOddCouple'' also did a flashback episode to Oscar and Felix meeting on a jury where Felix was a RogueJuror in reference to this role.
