This evening’s movie feature is ‘Waiting for Guffman’.

To Kill A Mockingbird

This evening’s feature is the 1962 film classic ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ starring Gregory Peck.

The film version of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer-prize-winning, semi-autobiographical novel, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ was one of those rare screen adaptations that pleased fans of the book and its author as well. After seeing the film, Lee commented, “I can only say that I am a happy author. They have made my story into a beautiful and moving motion picture. I am very proud and grateful.”

Set in Lee’s hometown, Monroeville, Alabama, ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ vividly captures a specific time and place when racial unrest was at its peak in the South. Yet despite its controversial nature, the real focus of the story is the relationship between Scout, a tomboyish six-year-old, her older brother, Jem, and their attorney father. Part of the film’s huge appeal is seeing the dramatic events unfold through the innocent eyes of childhood.
