Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Reginald Rose's famous script about the real-time jury-room deliberations of 12 men on a murder case receives an audio presentation of mixed success. The more confidential exchanges are nicely presented close to the mike, and Hector Elizondo's performance as the bigoted juror is quite memorable. A few drawbacks weaken the overall effect, however. In an audio format, a cast this large requires some differentiation among the characters. However, dialogue is rattled off at such a rapid clip and with such a consistent tone of stridency that it almost ceases to sound natural and conversational. Sorting out the characters and the plot points amid all the hurried talk at times becomes a chore. G.H. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
  • "New York Times"

    "This tidy portrait of clashing social attitudes in a jury room definitely creaks with age. But somehow the creaks begin to sound like soothing music, a siren song from a period of American drama when personalities were drawn in clean lines, the moral was unmistakable and the elements of a plot clicked together like a jigsaw puzzle without a single missing piece."
