Quotes

Harry Wharton: I'm not going to hang? I'm not going to hang. Why, I've been hanged 100 times already. I'm a dead man, one of the living dead. Every time somebody marched down those stairs, I marched with him. I've hanged so many men on the gallows, the rope no longer chokes me.

Harry Wharton: That's funny, isn't it?
Prison Warden: Let's go down to my office, Harry.

major casting problem
4 May 2020 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

"The Missing Juror" is worth seeing since it's an early directorial film of Budd Boetticher, so it has some of his great camerawork. The film stars noir actress Janis Carter, Jim Bannon, George Macready, and Mike Mazurki.

A man is tried and found guilty of murder, and then the jurors start dying. A reporter (Bannon) becomes interested in the case - and in one of the jurors (Carter).

The problem is, if you're old enough and enough of a film fan, you'll have this plot figured out fairly quickly.

My favorite part of this film, I have to admit, were the dictation belts which, thirty-plus years after this movie, I was using.
