Small-town Alabama, 1932. Atticus Finch (played by Gregory Peck) is a lawyer and a widower. He has two young children, Jem and Scout. Atticus Finch is currently defending Tom Robinson, a black man accused of raping a white woman. Meanwhile, Jem and Scout are intrigued by their neighbours, the Radleys, and the mysterious, seldom-seen Boo Radley in particular. Written by
Robert Mulligan's way of handling his child actors was to let them play together while keeping the cameras as unobtrusive as possible. See more »
The license plate on Atticus Finch's car changes. At first it is 709-865 as Atticus backs his car out of the garage (0:44:20) for his first visit to Helen Robinson; and again (1:47:40) as he approaches the garage for the second trip. The plate is not seen during the first visit at the Robinson house, but when he reaches there the second time (1:47:57), it is 369-883. See more »

One of the most memorable and wonderful movies of the 20th century.
"To Kill A Mockingbird" is truly a much loved and critically-acclaimed film. It is a perfect portrayal of childhood innocence, racial prejudice, moral tolerance and courage. No other words can describe this film except marvellous. The film is so wonderfully done that the audience actually feels as if they were in Alabama during the 1930s. This is a must see for anyone of any age.
