Should also have the "Based-on-Television" genre.

A complete masterpiece. I honestly can't find one single thing wrong with it. And to think, it all took place in one location. Amazing feat for Henry Fonda on his first and only movie production! Unbelievable. And I didn't even mention his acting. He was superb. Oh, and as good as Fonda was, Lee J. Cobb stole the show!!! Love this film. A true landmark in American cinema history.
