This paper introduces the 1957 film classic, "Twelve Angry Men" with attention to varying juror personalities that show evidence of what we today discuss as personality disorders. The paper provides an explanation of examples, and addresses the prejudice as expressed in rigid opinions, a personality disorder phenomenon, and the anti-Hispanic prejudice in USA society that was less addressed at the time the film was made than American's notorious anti-African prejudice.

From the Paper:

"Sidney Lumet's award winning film, "Twelve Angry Men", has been described as a classic in its depiction of different human personalities and how they interact with the trial by jury system in America. (1957) Twelve very different jurors have been chosen to hear the case of a young Spanish-American man charged with having stabbed his father to death. Jurors vary tremendously in how they interpret and decide upon the same proceedings, submissions of evidence and testimony, and to dangerous points, in terms of the production of justice."
