Twelve jurors gather to decide the fate of a young girl. Did she stab her uncle in cold blood? Eleven jurors say yes; one, a student actress, says no. The jurors agree to her request to re-enact the crime right there. Props are brought in - including the actual murder weapon. The actress becomes the accused, the foreman takes the part of the murdered man. As the re-enactment proceeds, the verdict, the solution, and the climax all come together with an unexpected twist.

nother Hollywood classic that tackles the boundaries of friendship and the true meaning behind the word frenemy. This dramedy is about two childhood best friends who, as adults. are now dealing with success and love in their own terms. Both become well-known authors, but when they get a chance to reunite, their simmering professional rivalry tests their manners and friendship. A runaway 1943 hit, starring Bette Davis. A true classic worth re-visiting!

Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize winning novel "Tales of the South Pacific" By James Michener
Set in an island paradise during World War II, two parallel love stories are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war. Nellie, a spunky nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with a mature French planter, Emile. Nellie learns that the mother of his children was an island native and, unable to turn her back on the prejudices with which she was raised, refuses Emile's proposal of marriage. Meanwhile, the strapping Lt. Joe Cable denies himself the fulfillment of a future with an innocent Tonkinese girl with whom he's fallen in love out of the same fears that haunt Nellie. When Emile is recruited to accompany Joe on a dangerous mission that claims Joe's life, Nellie realizes that life is too short not to seize her own chance for happiness, thus confronting and conquering her prejudices.
