The first biography of a great television writer and the story of his magnum opus In early 1957, a low-budget black-and-white movie opened across the United States. Consisting of little more than a dozen men arguing in a dingy room, it was a failure at the box office and soon faded from view. Today, 12 Angry Men is acclaimed as a movie classic, revered by the critics, beloved by the public, and widely performed as a stage play, touching audiences around the world. It is also a favorite of the legal profession for its portrayal of ordinary citizens reaching a just verdict and widely taught for its depiction of group dynamics and human relations. Few twentieth-century American dramatic works have had the acclaim and impact of 12 Angry Men. Reginald Rose and the Journey of “12 Angry Men” tells two stories: the life of a great writer and the journey of his most famous work, one that ultimately outshined its author. More than any writer in the Golden Age of Television, Reginald Rose took up vital social issues of the day—from racial prejudice to juvenile delinquency to civil liberties—and made them accessible to a wide audience. His 1960s series, The Defenders, was the finest drama of its age and set the standard for legal dramas. This book brings Reginald Rose’s long and successful career, its origins and accomplishments, into view at long last. By placing 12 Angry Men in its historical and social context—the rise of television, the blacklist, and the struggle for civil rights—author Phil Rosenzweig traces the story of this brilliant courtroom drama, beginning with the chance experience that inspired Rose, to its performance on CBS’s Westinghouse Studio One in 1954, to the feature film with Henry Fonda. The book describes Sidney Lumet’s casting, the sudden death of one actor, and the contribution of cinematographer Boris Kaufman. It explores the various drafts of the drama, with characters modified and scenes added and deleted, with Rose settling on th

Visionary Leadership. Many people talk about it. Some have written about it. A few have been called visionary leaders. But only one man embodied its full meaning-Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Crucified and risen over 2,000 years ago, his visionary leadership continues to draw multitudes of followers today. Most writings about Jesus focus on what he did-proclaim the kingdom of God-and why-to save the world from its sin-but have neglected how he did it. How did his vision for establishing the Christian faith become so successful? How has Christianity lasted longer and grown larger than any other organization in history? In his ground breaking work "One Plus Twelve," Lee Bartolomei delves into the how of Christianity through a detailed examination of who Jesus Christ is and his simple, yet multi-layered vision for making disciples. Bartolomei then shows how any organization-business, non-profit, religious, and more-can become successful and enduring in just three short years! Bartolomei shows you how to: • Establish core ideology, values, and purpose that make up a vision • Find and develop like-minded leadership who can carry out a vision • Confront the brutal facts that hinder a vision • Develop a culture of discipline to continue a vision ...and much more!
