Out now from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is To Kill A Mockingbird 60th Anniversary Edition which stars Gregory Peck, Mary Badham, Phillip Alford, John Megna, Frank Overton, Rosemary Murphy, Collin Wilcox, James Anderson, and Robert Duvall.
Gregory Peck won an Oscar for his brilliant performance as the Southern lawyer who defends a black man accused of rape in this film version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The way in which it captures a time, a place, and above all, a mood, makes this film a masterpiece.
The setting is a dusty Southern town during the Depression. A white woman accuses a black man of rape. Though he is obviously innocent, the outcome of his trial is such a foregone conclusion that no lawyer will step forward to defend him except Peck, the town's most distinguished citizen. His compassionate defense costs him many friendships but earns him the respect and admiration of his two motherless children.
My Opinion: I have never seen this movie but I have now and the film quality I thought was amazing it was so touching as this lawyer stood up for what is right during a time when others would not and it shows how strong and courageous he was.
