  1. This movie shows people at their best and at their worst. Situations like the trial and accusation of rape create the time and place when we show our true selves.

    This is a classic story set in a simpler time when civil rights hadn’t even come into play, yet. It’s a time when summers were long, Halloween was special and justice was finally served in the end. Gregory Peck deserved the Oscar that he won for his roll as Atticus Finch. If you’ve never seen this wonderful movie; remember it’s about a time that was part of our American history and not based on today’s standards of equal rights.

    Just an absolute classic film and story. Really makes you think about all the good and bad that goes on in the world. How you should respect and understand the best you can what each person is going through.

    Well lets look at it from the industry perspective first. Atticus Finch was named by AFI as the #1 hero in movie history. He is color blind when it comes to injustice against all humans which helps to make him the single greatest influential character of the 20th century. The film was also named as the 25th greatest on AFI’s 10th anniverasry top 100 list, no small feat when it comes to number of classics it was able to beat out. Personally, To Kill a Mockingbird is by far Gregory Pecks best role. One of the all time great actors, his portrayal of Finch is what great acting is all about. There are some roles where you can watch them and say ” You know who could have played him/her…” You absolutely can’t do that here. Peck was born to play Atticus and we as movie fans are lucky he was around at the right time to bring him to life.

    The movie is a classic~ a story that is still timely and important today, and the acting is sublime. It brings all the emotions.

  7. Liliana Maria Radwanski says:

    What makes it a classic is that this film was taken from a classic novel.
    It has an ageless , timeless story. Gregory Peck was Born to play Atticus Finch.
    He was amazing in this Film. I would so Love to see it on the Big Screen!

  8. Steve D says:

    The slow, deliberate pace perfectly emulates a hot southern summer. Local casting of the children and extras made it all the more authentic. The fact that the author was involved in the production kept the story true to the novel.

  9. Justin Probert says:

    When I was in high school I took an elective course on classic film. I only watched modern film at that time (early 1980′s) and seeing To Kill A Mockingbird for the first time changed my life indelibly. I’ve been a classic film fan ever since and have watched this film repeatedly over the years but would love a chance to finally see it on the big screen. It is a classic for many reasons but the character that resonated the most for me is Scout. Her innocence at the opening of the movie and her transformation during the course of the three years depicted in the film had a huge impact on me.
