12 Angry Men

John Fiedler's character in 12 Angry Men is the same as his character in A Raisin in the Sun

Juror 8 was the killer
  • He didn't want an innocent boy to die for his actions but didn't feel strongly enough to confess himself. And he did find a copy of that super-rare knife.
    • He was the one who stressed how horrible the kid had it at home. Maybe the guy's treatment of the kid motivated him?
    • Supposedly super-rare knife. The store owner who sold the kid the knife swore on his life that it was the only one of it's kind... And another one appears in a pawn shop, according to Juror 8. This in of itself proves the knife was reproduced, and can't be nailed down to one or two men. This in turns leaves the only evidence brought forth to be 8's strong notion of the kid's treatment.

In the original film, Juror #3 is drunk.
  • He slurs some of his speech and his speech pattern is definitely off. He is easily the most emotional of the all the jurors, and his anger has him almost on the verge of tears from the beginning. He threatens to start fights, never thinks before he speaks, and even walks in a staggered way.

This movie could have helped create the Ace Attorney Series
