There is nothing better than watching a movie on the big screen. In this instance, that was never more true. I saw things I had never noticed before when I watched this movie on my TV set. The wonderful sets made you feel like you were right there in that town in another era.
All performances were so real. The two children acted like children and every one of their thoughts showed up on their faces. Gregory Peck deserved his oscar as he was the ever steady presence and guidance for his two children and others.
Interestingly enough all the pearls of wisdom didn't just come from him but perhaps because of his guidance, both Jem and Scout surprise us all with the way they stand up for what's right and show their loyalty and human decency.
I loved this movie before but am now more attracted to it for its harsh reality, sweet innocence and hopeful message.
Thanks for making it available on the big screen.

I was thrilled to see that i would have the opportunity to watch what i feel is one of the best movies ever made on the big screen. This was a wonderful event and the opening bio-pic was great at giving some unknown insight into the movie. Keep up the good work TCM.

The movie was absolutely great! The acting was REAL, you believed each one of the actors were actually the characters. The Director, Robert Mulligan was a genius in his ability to convey this story. It is an extremely moving picture, Mulligan was able to show the love between Atticus and his children, as well as the respect he had for Calpurnia, the black woman that raised and cared for his children, and in turn the respect the black community had for Atticus. Also, the unfairness of very narrow minded people and a way of life. Mulligan, through Atticus, Jem and Scout showed what really matters in life and the values we all should live by.
This is an extremely important movie, which was released at a very tumultuous time of our country's history. The acting, directing, music and sets rank right at the top of all the movies ever made!
HOORAY, HOORAY to TCM for allowing us the great pleasure of seeing this and other movie classics on the big screen!!

I have loved this movie since I was a kid but this was the first time to see it on the Big Screen. It made the experience even better. I took my oldest son with me (37) and he loved it as much as I did. I know it touches on a dark subject but it is well made and I would reccommend this movie to anyone over 16 years of age.
