I remember vividly having seen the 1957 film 12 Angry Men in the 1980's on TV (most probably the early 1980's). I remember many specific details of it, including things from the basic plot, and other more specific details such as the basic plot wherein at first everybody except one juror voting guilty, that one saying that he doesn't want to be so quick to condemn a person to death so hastily. Or more specific details, like the part with the knife, and the part where they measure how long it would be taken for a crippled person to walk the necessary distance to the door.
One of my most vivid memories was the ending: When the jurors had finally reached the conclusion, they return to the court room, where the accused is a man who looks like he has lost all hope, looking at the floor in anguish, and whose expression changes to extreme surprise and cautious joy, and his expression clearly brightens, after he hears the "not guilty" verdict. An extraordinary acting performance that really conveyed the emotions of a man who was sure to be sentenced to death suddenly hearing the life-saving news!
I recently re-watched the film, after over 30 years. To my dismay, that last scene never happens! In the actual film the jurors just do a final vote of unanimous not-guilty in the deliberation room, and then the film cuts to them leaving the courthouse, and that's it. The court room and the accused are never even shown in the ending!
As much I would like to joke of this being yet another case of the Mandela Effect, what I think is really happening is that either there's a different version of the movie with that scene, or more probably, I'm conflating something else I have seen with this movie. Maybe I later saw, perhaps, some kind of made-for-TV remake film, or perhaps just a completely unrelated film with such an ending, which I then years later conflated in my memory?
Does anybody have any idea or suggestion where that ending scene might have appeared? Are there alternative cuts to the 1957 12 Angry Men, or are there some minor remakes (I'm pretty much certain that I remember having seen that ending scene in the 1980's, so I don't think it can be much later than that) with that kind of ending, or perhaps some other court room drama with that ending?
