12 Angry Men

I have no idea why I started in on this piece, but one afternoon I "saw" that famous group shot of them all in a sort of monochromatic fashion and I just sort of went with it.

I liked the idea of doing an entire movie poster with just two colors (okay, two colors plus a little bit of white), to see if it would work. And while I don't think this is one of the best things I've ever done, I do think it works!

One addition I felt I had to make: the famous shot of the titular angry men features only eleven of them, looking at the twelfth--Lee J. Cobb. Since I wanted all twelve men on there (plus I just love Lee J. Cobb) I shoehorned him into the shot, eighth from left. He deserves a more prominent spot, but it was the only place he fit. Sorry, Mr. Cobb.

I have always longed to see a movie poster for 12 Angry Men and a Baby.
