To Kill A Mockingbird

This is my favorite movie and seeing it again on a big screen (the way all great films should be seen btw) only made me love it more. How wonderful to listen to others in the audience enjoying the wonderful performances of the cast and the heart so clear in this story was most moving. I always cry at the end of the movie and last night was no exception. Really cool to find out I am not the only one, as all of us left the theater wiping tears from our eyes. I sure hope this is not the last time we get to see classics like this one on a movie screen. Please keep it up TMC!

To Kill a Mockingbird

Beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the finest screen adaptations of one of the greatest books ever written. The role of Atticus Finch was the role Gregory Peck was born to play. Evil flourishes when men of good character do nothing, but I fear that there were so few men of the character of Atticus Finch in my deep South of the l930's.....more's the pity. This film has had a profound impact on my beliefs about equality and justice, which belong to all men or belong to none. Much of the film brings back fond memories of my childhood is a small southern town in the 1950's and 60's, but also memories, not so fond, such as the abysmal poverty that surrounded me, not merely financial poverty, but poverty of the soul, of the spirit. Thirty years after the setting of this film, many of the evils exposed by Harper Lee still existed and to some extent still exist, only to a slightly lesser degree. All this seen through the eyes of an innocent child, recalls my own innocence in those days.

To Kill a Mockingbird

Did you know the three best selling works of fiction in the 2Oth were all first time novels by women: Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell; Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Suzanne; and To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. This movie is closely drawn from the original novel, it's a must see on DVD, but for Turner Classic Movies to bring us yet another must see classic to the big screen is truly awesome. Can't wait for the next one.

Amazingly Moving

I couldn't believe that a movie I had seen countless times on TV could move me to tears. The dignity of Gregory Peck's interpretation of Atticus Finch and the obvious true affection that was exhibited between Scott and Atticus that spilled over into the real life actors was absolutely wonderful. With the big screen, big feelings and concepts seemed to be the right size for emotions and social statements. Mind blowing!

To see this film on the big screen, and in the black and white, was a joy. I wish there were more releases like this. Was though, disappointed that there not that many people in the theatre, and no minorities. This to me would have been a great movie for students to see.
