Did You Know?
- Brock Peters, who played Tom Robinson in the film, delivered Gregory Peck's eulogy on the date of his funeral and burial, Monday, June 16, 2003.
- When Bob Ewell is on the witness stand and Atticus asks him if he ran for a doctor, Atticus is hovering over Ewell and his visible shadow behind Ewell reflects this (1:13:52 to 1:13:56). When the camera shifts to Atticus, he is a good 10-15 feet away (1:13:56 to 1:14:00). When the camera returns to Ewell, Atticus' shadow is still there (1:14:00 to 1:14:10).
- Atticus Finch: If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.
Atom User Reviews
One of the best movies ever from one of the best books ever.
I had forgotten how good this movie actually was. The performances were outstanding. You could see the humanity of a people who were struggling with change and a system that was still entrenched in the South at the time, both of the book and when the movie was released
Few films have caught the special feel and rhythms of childhood so well, with such uncondescending warmth and humor. And few bring out more powerfully the themes of anti-racism and the virtues and joys of community and family. [20 Apr 2007, p.C5]
