Grade 9 Up-This excellent anthology focuses on Reginald Rose's play about a jury deliberating the fate of a disadvantaged Hispanic teen accused of murdering his father. It was originally produced live for the television series Studio One in 1954 and later made into the classic film starring Henry Fonda. In recent years, it has found new life as a Broadway production and in another television version. This volume brings together a wealth of information, from a biography of the playwright to interviews with Fonda, and a concluding chapter on "Jury Behavior in Real Life." Also included is criticism of the productions and the screenplay itself, as well as brief insights from a variety of observers, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Fran?ois Truffaut, and Pauline Kael. The book concludes with an excellent bibliography and an index. It will be a valuable addition to both American literary-criticism and film-studies collections. It also might be of use in criminal justice courses, where jury behavior is explored.
