** At the time this was written in the '50s, women and nonwhites were excluded from jury service in some parts of the country. These days, the script is often produced as ''Twelve Angry Jurors'' with a more diverse cast.
** Physical abuse is treated more lightly in this movie than it would be today. While most of the jurors seem to disapprove that the boy's father beat him regularly, they don't seem too phased when Juror #3 defends it against "a kid like that".

* 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. ''Theatre/TheOddCouple'' also did a flashback episode to Oscar and Felix meeting on a jury where Felix was a RogueJuror in reference to this role.

* Minor one but in the 1997 version, Juror 7 finally breaking his snarky demeanor when Juror 11 delivers his speech to him. In the end, we still don't know what his actual opinion in the trial was.

* 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]]

*** Did Juror #7 actually believe in the verdicts that he gave? Did he truly think that the boy was guilty/innocent?
