Welcome, loyal listeners, to 2012! On Alcohollywood, we revisit a film classic – Sidmey Lumet’s 1957 film 12 Angry Men! Learn about the finer points of 1950s racism, the judicial system, and personal prejudice, all while sweating out the hottest day in New York. Henry Fonda leads a fantastic cast, including Piglet, A Robot, Diet Don Draper and young Grandpa from Problem Child!
THIS EPISODE’S DRINK: The 12 Angry Blend
5 parts Dr. Pepper
5 parts Mr. Pibb
Pour over ice. Stir. Argue heatedly.
(Word to the wise/cheap: You can substitute the 12 Angry Blends for a normal whiskey and coke – just replace the ten whiskeys with 5 parts of your one favorite, and 5 parts of your favorite dark soda.)
DRINKING RULES FOR 12 ANGRY MEN:
- Face-mopping/general handkerchief business
- Sitting or standing
- Every time someone says the word “guilty”
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
Juror No. 3 (Lee J. Cobb) finally relents and tearfully whispers: “Not guilty….not guilty.”
Join us next week, as we denote the 3D re-release of Disney’s animated film Beauty and the Beast by discussing and drinking to the original film – stay tuned!
