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.
