I have seen this magnificant CLASSIC movie numerous times, and to see it finally on the big screen in HD validates the performance Gregory Peck won in 1962! Such a wonderful story & acting & art direction for the true-to-life set.
I still hate Eula Mae and Mr Ewell everytime I see it and Brock Peter's as Tom Robinson always brings me to tears...........
THANK YOU TCM!

It was as good (or better!) the 20th time as it was the first time! A timeless story that brings tears to my eyes every time.

Watched "To Kill A Mockingbird" yesterday at the Rockaway AMC with two other people. Also a favorite of mine. It made me laugh and cry. It was amazing to watch on the big screen. You tend to pay more attention to it. Much more of an impact on the big screen. A must see for anyone who loves the old black and white films.

To Kill a Mockingbird is my all time favorite movie and I've seen A LOT of movies! I own a copy on DVD and watch it often. I may not be the most objective reviewer/critic. I have never seen it on the big screen so that was a big draw for me.
In the beginning, there was some trivia about the actors and the art direction. I was amazed that the film was made on a backlot of Universal Studios. They dismantled an entire community of clapboard houses and re-assembled them on the backlot. The acting was supberb especially the children.
The remastering was gorgeous! There was a good crowd despite a week night showing and everyone enjoyed it. We laughed and cried. My favorite scene is when Atticus walks out of the courtroom with the African American crowd standing. The Rev. tells Miss Jane Louise to stand as her father is passing. Very emotional scene for me.
As I said, I'm not at all objective where this movie is concerned. I LOVED it and would see it again if avaiilable.
