It sounds so cliche to say they don't make movies like this anymore but when was the last time you saw a move that didn't have special effects and computer generated stuff. This is a movie about people and the emotions that we all share, The close ups of the actors faces which you don't see on a tv screen are central to the appreciation of the story. The music tells a story itself and is perfect as Elmer Bernstein always is,( Magnificent Seven.. The Great Escape among many others) The chemistry among the actors is perfection and what more can be said about Gregory Peck. He is Atticus Finch. Go see this on the big screen if you can. It is a totally new experience . It will stay with you forever. Thanks to TCM and please do more on the big screen.

Even though it's 50 years old, it still has relevance to today's society. The children were marvelous--how nice that they could manage to be so creative in their play without any technology that kids depend upon today. We've come a long way in dealing with prejudice, yet there's a long way to go. Gregory Peck was outstanding as Atticus Finch. The verdict in Mr. Robinson's trial was despicable yet
not surprising given the prevailing views of ignorant people. Wonderful movie! Good for all ages. Makes for a wonderful discussion.

Loved the movie and seeing it on the big screen! It has been a long time since I have seen the whole movie straight through. I did miss the interviews they usually have before the movie, though. Great time. TCM please continue to have these classic movie nights!

Timeless, dignified, significant....beautiful. My vocabulary is too limited to give this movie a more accurate description. I grew up on this movie as well as many other classic films and I have introduced it to my children. I wish it were a requirement for all high school students. Each actor plays out their role with such perfection - I am mesmerized. The entire production is a masterpiece. I hope we never let it sit on a shelf and accumulate dust.
