A comedy?[edit]

I'd just like to dispute the genre of "comedy" that was given to the movie in the info box. While I haven't watched this version of the play, I have watched the 1957 version and read the play, and I do believe that the category of "drama" would be a lot more appropriate. I haven't changed it, though, as I have no proof to back me up. The edit that gave it the comedy genre was [1] (Note, if someone can, please replace that with an oldid template, as I don't yet know how to do that, and remove this message inside the brackets).

The black racist adds a lot of comedy to it.--Ssteiner209 (talk) 00:12, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Plot too long?[edit]

I'm not too sure if this tag is applicable here, since I'm inexperienced in editing film articles. But I'll leave it here for consideration for the more experienced editors. ANGCHENRUI Talk 06:35, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Plot copied[edit]

Although both are remakes of the same original work, it appears that all of the plot summary of this article has been lifted directly from the plot summary in the article of the 1957 version. This just looks unprofessional (an outside reader's take: "What, they can't take the time to rewrite one lousy plot summary?"). Could we get someone to fix this?

I saw that there is a chart for the 1957 version of this film that lists the cast of the 1997 as well. I think it would be useful to have that chart on this article as well. Mzzyzx (talk) 01:33, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

List of Jurors Unnecessary[edit]

Isn't the list of jurors unnecessary according to the Manual of Style? The information should probably be integrated into the Plot section, yes? And even if we do keep it, perhaps it should be placed in the Cast or Characters section instead, since the list includes more than the Jurors? «--PK 06:16, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Why not just rename the topic "Cast and Characters"221bbaker (talk) 19:15, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
