Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-This excellent anthology focuses on Reginald Rose's play about a jury deliberating the fate of a disadvantaged Hispanic teen accused of murdering his father. It was originally produced live for the television series Studio One in 1954 and later made into the classic film starring Henry Fonda. In recent years, it has found new life as a Broadway production and in another television version. This volume brings together a wealth of information, from a biography of the playwright to interviews with Fonda, and a concluding chapter on "Jury Behavior in Real Life." Also included is criticism of the productions and the screenplay itself, as well as brief insights from a variety of observers, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Fran ois Truffaut, and Pauline Kael. The book concludes with an excellent bibliography and an index. It will be a valuable addition to both American literary-criticism and film-studies collections. It also might be of use in criminal justice courses, where jury behavior is explored.-Elizabeth M. Reardon, McCallie School, Chattanooga, TN Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    Twelve Angry Men

    I read this book in school this year, and I must admitt, I really didn't like it that much. It was an OK book, but it just didn't seem to suit me. My teacher said the same thing: 'It's and alright book, but it doesn't interest most people who read it'. I must agree. It was a little tiring, and a little exciting. The end was maybe the most anticipated part of the book. Not only because it was the end, but because we finally got to see who voted 'Not Guilty'. This is just my opinion. I'm sure other people loved it. [i am starting and online book club. if anyone is interested, please instant message or e-mail me at: crzy4lovinyou. thank you!]
