    Nice extras--the 1955 teleplays of both 12 Angry Men and Tragedy in a Temporary Town. Makes me want Criterion to release an MGM John Frankenhemer feature (Birdman of Alcatraz?) to see what sort of extras are included from his live TV days.

    Sweet! One of my favorite movies. Its one of those that I watch at least twice a year. Sometimes as a double feature with Lifeboat. For some reason they seem to fit together well. Doug

    That cover is gorgeous. I was in a stage version of this in high school (I was Juror #7, the Jack Warden character), so it's always held a special place for me. I'll definitely buy it.

    I did the play a few years ago. I was Juror #4 (E.G. Marshall) though the play script has several other facets of their investigation not in this film version.
