This story is a classic; always has been, always will be. IMO, anyhow. I have loved the novel since I can remember, and the film leaves nothing to be desired. It is one of my favourites, so of course I took the opportunity to see it on the big screen--something I have never had the chance to do.
This ensemble of actors is simply outstanding. The direction, the cinematography, the acting--brilliant. Almost throughout the whole film, I actually felt like I was there with the Finch family, and that I was witnessing everything as if it were happening right in front of me.
Atticus Finch is probably the closest thing to a perfect role model, which to me almost emanates from Peck himself. With so many touching and emotional scenes in this film, I often found myself tearing up. This is a story everyone should take the time to experience.

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.

We loved the big screen version of To Kill a Mockingbird! It was emotional right from the very beginning. Loved every bit of it!

I had seen To Kill a Mockingbird only on the small screen prior to last night's showing. I knew it was a powerful movie but, on the big screen, it is even more powerful than I knew. I was moved to tears several times and chuckled at other times. I noticed details I had never seen before. The feeling of the movie stayed with me long after leaving the theater. I would love to see other moves this way.

We loved it. All the acting was superb, the story galloped along at a great pace, and I was rivited to it. Wish today's movies were as gripping. No color, no special effects ... just first-rate acting and story telling. Thanks for making it available to see again after all those years. Hope you're planning to have more of those oldies but wonderful goodies. We'll see every one, in spite of the fact that we almost never go see current movies. We hate the jumpy graphics, the profanity, the all-too-graphic sex and the super-loud so-called music in current offerings.
