1. One of the best movies EVER...

Great actors, great acting. So intense...

However, while the majority of the movie takes place in one room (the jury room) the final seen is outside on the steps of the courthouse.

Still, virtually an entire movie set in one room is extraordinary....

2. Yep, just watched it for the millionth time.

Amy Schumer's skit about the film is so good.

“12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer,” Tuesday night’s episode of Schumer’s Comedy Central sketch series, perfectly spoofs the film to mock and comment on the seriousness and the hypocrisy with which our culture obsessively comments on an actress’s looks. Specifically, how her looks relate to her talent and the opportunity she’s afforded in Hollywood."

3. Saw a production of it on Broadway a few years ago.

Even though I'd seen the movie a few times, seeing it on stage was a great experience.

4. Remade several times

My favorite is still the original live TV version with Bob Cummings, Franchot Tone and Edward Arnold.
