FAVORITE ANGRY MAN #1: Juror 8 (Henry Fonda)

He is number 28 on the American Film Institute’s list of the greatest heroes in film history, but he finishes off our year-long 12 Angry Men countdown at number one! Juror 8 (Henry Fonda) is the voice of reason. The voice of fairness. He stands alone in the beginning with his ‘not guilty’ vote, purely based on what he considers to be insufficient evidence on which to send a boy to his death. He stands his ground but is always willing to listen and, through conversation, he slowly but surely manages to change the minds of his fellow jurors. He understands without judging and he reasons without arguing. His moral compass and sense of justice guide him on and he stands up for what he believes in. May we all be Juror 8.

Thank you for the love, I hope you’ve enjoyed this countdown and Merry Christmas!
