The problem here is that you don't do that to a 500 years old statue. Why do they keep allowing these amateur "restorers" anywhere near antique art?

How do you get convicted without a unanimous jury? Isn't that "hung?"

Video tape never had a chance beyond television. The resolution, even on beta decks, wasn't even close to what 35mm film could produce, which makes a huge difference when you are projecting something onto a giant screen.

i'm assuming it's connected to the fact that many filmmakers in the 50s were afraid that television would replace movies

in which case videotape was a genuine "threat" to film

Currently, two states, Oregon and Louisiana, do not require unanimous verdicts in criminal cases. Each requires a 10-2 majority for conviction, except for capital crimes: Oregon requires at least 11 votes and Louisiana requires all 12.


This happened in Oregon.
