@MikeAAA - Tubi and Pluto are frequent go-to's on my Roku.  I don't mind the ads too much if it means I get to watch for free.  And there aren't as many as there are on regular TV.  I like that Tubi tells you how many there will be.  You know if there's time to grab a snack, drink, of flip a load of laundry.

I tend to forget about YouTube.  I have no idea why.  I need to push that back on my radar.

@MikeAAA - You can find a bunch of Charlie Chan movies on YouTube (full length, no commercials, & free). I always enjoyed Charlie Chan as a kid and still do.

I have two apps on my phone (TUBI and PLUTO TV)  which are both free to use for TV watching. You have to deal with some ads but no worse than on regular  TV.
I saw that one of them had 12 Angry Men but I didn't watch the whole thing. The other things I found are old movies with Charlie Chan, who is a "detective"; it's so silly but still watchable.

The stage production takes place solely in the jury room, so there are no witnesses, just the twelve jurors and the bailiff who has only one or two lines. I have seen this done though, with women playing some jurors. The title just becomes "12 Angry Jurors."

Fabulous. I always pushed for a stage play version for our drama club as a high school thespian but I guess it didn't include enough girls except for the unflattering roles as witness. Q.How could the cast of that movie been improved? A.No way.
