12 Angry Men – 1957

March 7, 2009

title
I recently re-watched one of my favorite movies “12 Angry Men” this past week.  It was exciting to watch because I haven’t seen it in several years.  I almost forgot how stylish the movie was.  The 12 jurors all have impeccable style – french cuffs, white oxford, excessive smoking, and skinny ties.  This movie is required viewing for high school government classes, but if that was the last time you saw it, I definitely recommend watching it again.

Busby Berkeley was a movie director and musical choreographer from the late 1920’s – 1970’s.  His most famous work was during the 1930’s.  He was known for his large extravagant sets and aerial shots of showgirls creating kaleidoscopic effects in camera.  Below are some great stills from various films along with a clip from the 1934 film “Dames”.  I found these images on Google Images.
