Besides being a classic, this movie is a historical marker of how things used to be in the South.
It also shows how and why things needed to change in order to bring all of us into the future. The two unknown kids were superb. Peck does an outstanding job both as a lawyer and as a father. Was surprised, as this was my first viewing, to see the introduction of Robert Duvaul. Highly recommend the movie, and kudos to TCM for bringing the series of classics to the big screen for today's audiences. Love the introduction and background pieces at the beginning. Much better than the stupid sound bites and previews of coming attractions.
