One of the best movies of all time on the big screen, viewing TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD last night was movie buff's dream. The performances are still amazing, especially Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. He could not have been more perfect. Even my ten-year-old immediately commented that he was exactly what she imagined Atticus would be from the book. This Blu-ray DVD will be a treasured part of my collection for sure!

This drama is AWESOME ! I have always seen this movie on television however seeing this movie on the silver screen was truly a treat. Gregory Peck in the title role of Atticus Finch could not get any better. I understand why he received an Oscar for this role. This drama takes us to a time where people were just plain prejusticed and bigoted, but not Atticus Finch. He was a single father of two children and trying to carve out a living as a southern lawyer. The story really gets started when Atticus Finch is asked to defend a negro man accused of raping a white woman in Alabama. The lies continued to the very end. This was pretty groovey to see. Loved it ! Lovedit ! Loved it !

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.

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.

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite films, and I was eager to see it on the big screen.
I enjoyed the event tremendously, although the restoration on portions of the film gave it the fuzzy look of a 60's television show shot on video. I am not sure if this was due to its being transmitted via satellite, but it left me feeling as if the theater were a big television screen.
I saw the film with a friend, and we both noticed that Mayella (the supposed rape victim) did not touch the Bible when she was sworn in to the witness chair. This was something we probably never would have seen on a smaller screen. It is a detail that seemed to explain the character's willingness to lie on the stand.
