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.

This was SUPER! It was wonderful to see this amazing story on the big screen - Anyone that missed this showing missed a once in a lifetime event. See the "classics" on a big screen is like seeing something for the first time! It was a great evening. Bring us MORE!!

To Kill a Mockingbird

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.

I enjoyed this showing so much in Raleigh, N.C. Seeing it in the theater was such a great experience. I haven't viewed the movie in its entirety since I saw it in 1962. It did not disappoint. The story and the moral are just as relevant today.

One Of The All Time Greats

Absolutely amazing on the big screen. My wife and I laughed and cried all through this timeless classic. Movies have such a powerful impact on the large screen. We have enjoyed all the TCM Presents series but we were truly excited about seeing Gregory Peck in his Oscar winning performance. It is also such a treat to actually be able to see and hear an entire movie without interruptions because your fellow moviegoers are just as interested in seeing the whole movie as you are and don't want to miss any of it. Perhaps it is because the crowd is a little older and can sit still for a movie that doesn't rely on special effects or CGI to keep you entertained. It is the content and how the actor plies his trade. Loved this presentation of To Kill A Mockingbird and can't wait for future "TCM Presents Movies". If you need any suggestions just let me know I have a few I could recommend that I and I believe many others would love too. Kevin
