To Kill A Mockingbird is the first movie I remember seeing by myself in my hometown theatre as an impressionable 9 year old in 1963. I loved it then as I love it now. So many wonderful messages in the book and film. Thank you, Harper Lee, for helping set my compass toward "walking around in another person's shoes." Thank you, TCM, for bringing it to the big screen. It would be fantastic to see more of our yesteryear films resurrected in this way.

Worth The Effort

My wife has seen the movie and is one of her favorites. I had never seen it and because it's black & white I was not as they say psyched to see it. I was pleasently suprised at how good it it. The child actress that plays Scout was the best child actor performance I have seen. It doesn't end like you thought it would in todays cookie cutter legal dramas abd the trial is kind of secondary to Scout's account of her long summer. I must also confess I can't recall seeing any Gregory Peck movies but his performance was very good his trial summation was one of the best speeches in movie history. If you like Grisham you'll love this film. I would really look forward to see other movies in the Universial 100 in this format.

Whether you've seen this movie or not, this is a "Must Go" movie. To see it on the big screen for the first time was amazing—so much talent represented in the film. Great cast of veterans, inspiring newcomers, and terrific cinematography. This movie changed my life as a boy, and it brought back so many wonderful memories. Loved the interviews and insider info at the beginning of the film. What a great way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this classic film. My favorite movie and book of all time.

To Kill a Mockingbird

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.
