  3. I missed participating in your quizzes. My score is 8/12. I recall so vividly the heat in that jury room in “12 Angry Men”. It was almost a character on its own there.

    • For sure. It really was sweltering. You feel like you need a glass of water just watching it. The director actually narrowed the walls during the shooting so it is actually more crowded and sweaty.
