Trivia

Mary Badham, the youngest at age nine to receive an Oscar nomination (for Best Actress in a Supporting Role), lost to 14-year-old Patty Duke for The Miracle Worker (1962). Both films are based on women who were born in small towns in Alabama. See more »

Goofs

While Atticus is giving his closing arguments standing before the jury, the camera briefly switches to Jem (at 1:38:21) sitting in the balcony and then quickly back to Atticus (at 1:38:24) who is now leaning on the rail in front of jury instead of standing stock straight. The cuts are not seamless. At 1:38:20 a close-up of Atticus ends where he is only seen from his elbows up and his thumbs may be tucked into the pockets of his vest. After the close-up of Jem, the scene cuts to a long shot of Atticus from the back of the courtroom standing on his left leg with this right leg resting on the bottom rail of the jury box, perhaps leaning with a stiff right arm on the top rail of the jury box and with his left arm across his chest perhaps grasping his right arm - in this pose, he says "In the name of God, believe Tom Robertson" and pauses for three seconds, at which time (1:38:36) the scene cuts to a close-up of Atticus from above his elbows up, apparently leaning with both arms on the top rail of the jury box, raising himself to an upright position.

Wonderful
3 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is why I watch movies. Every once in a while I stumble upon such a masterpiece which moves me to tears, because it reminds me that, all bad things aside, there is good in all of us - we just have to help each other search for it and bring it to light.

This is definitely one of the best films I've ever seen. Mary Badham is absolutely wonderful as 'Scout', and I think she deserves just as much credit as Gregory Peck for this picture.

The rest of the cast are great as well, and a special mention goes to Elmer Bernstein for his delicate and so appropriate score.

I love this movie and recommend it to anyone. 10/10
