To Kill a Mockingbird

In 1962, director Robert Mulligan and screenwriter Horton Foote brought to the screen a classic literary tale of innocence lost. Written in 1960 by Harper Lee (her only novel), To Kill a Mockingbird won the Pulitzer Prize, and for the last 45 years, has been read by every student in an American school—it’s also number 21 on the list of books most challenged for use in classroom curriculum. Nonetheless, the film, which very much pleased Lee, quickly became part of cinema’s great film lexicon, with an Oscar-winning performance from Gregory Peck and a nomination for newcomer Mary Badham as Scout. So, grab the kids, revisit the dark racial waters of the deep South, and have a big, long talk at the end.
