Gregory Peck gives his career role in To Kill a Mockingbird, with every nuance bringing to life the good-hearted and intelligent lawyer Atticus Finch. The film's courtroom scenes are tense and revealing and don't pull their punches in terms of respecting the audience's intelligence. The supporting cast is equally wonderful and the film deals with a touchy subject with gravity and revelation.

Terrific adaptation of a terrific novel. The themes of the story remain timeless. This is due to the excellent execution of the material The film gives us a child's eye point-of-view to the ugliness of this racially charged situation. There's a genuine tenderness between the father and his children. Atticus is the purest role model. Peck is immaculate in his sincere portrayal of the character. It feels as if he is not just teaching his children a life lesson, but also the audience. Powerful sentiment is reached through the moral injustice done to Tom Robinson. His trial is one of the best dramatic courtroom scenes ever filmed.

An excellent message shells an excellent movie.

I usually don't like films which feature racism as the primary topic. They usually end up being forced emotion and white guilt, but for the ones that I do like, it's hard to leave out To Kill A Mockingbird.

I got the Digibook to this film a few months ago, and I'm not regretting a thing, it was worth every penny.
Although it is a black and white film, it has that feel-good quality that we barely find anymore in films today. It feels like it's in color. It reaches out to you with its characters, dialogue, excellent storyline and all-round execution.
It features the point of view of a child, which is sometimes very important, as innocence is a leading factor of justice and right and wrong need to be broken down.
Gregory Peck is mesmerizing. The dialogue he delivers gives me goosebumps...

Worthy of it's praise

I shouldn't have to tell you that To Kill A Mocking Bird is considered to be one of the greatest films ever to be made. I shouldn't have to inform you that this film is based off of the book by the same name, which is met with an equal amount of praise. But what I say now is important: This film is certainly worthy of all the praise.

To Kill A Mocking Bird is based off of Harper Lee's book by the same name. It's about a young girl named Scout, and her older brother Jem, and their puny friend, Dill. Scout's father, Atticus (Gregory Peck) takes a case to defend a black man named Tom Robinson, who is charged of raping a white woman.

That's really all there is to it. It's a simple tale, but an affecting one.

One of the best parts of the film, is the title sequence: A skillfully ed...

To Kill a Mockingbird review

Gregory Peck does an astounding job as the morally correct Lawyer Atticus Finch. Definitely a memorable performance and the kids likewise did a remarkable job. One of the few film's in its time with dual premises. A black man convicted of murder and the horrific tales of Arthur "Boo" Radley. The score, supporting cast, brilliant screenplay made the film interesting. Peck shines and the quotes are unforgettable. Atticus Finch - "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." "In our courts, all men are created equal. I'm no idealist to believe firmly... in the integrity of our courts and of our jury system. That's no ideal to me. That is a living, working reality!" "Shoot all the blue...
