  1. I use this movie as a training tool when teaching people how to recruit employees. I make the class take it home, watch it and discuss the facts, the power of persuasion and making the decision, right or wrong. Love this movie. All time classic.

  2. Have you seen the remake? I usually don’t go much for remakes, but Jack Lemmon in the Henry Fonda role, and especially George C. Scott were brilliant. If I have to choose, I watch the original, but the remake was VERY good.

  3. You can tell this was originally a stage play by the tight close ups and the blocking. I think that the director was brilliant giving it the feeling of a play on screen. The actors aren’t upstaged by too much clutter. The dialogue and the body language drive the tension and drama of this film. One of my top ten favorites.
