Rated NR · 129 minutes · 1962

Harper Lee's child's-eye view of southern bigotry gains something in its translation to the screen by Robert Mulligan, who knows exactly where to place the camera to catch a child's subjective experience (1962). Mulligan even wrings a respectable performance from Gregory Peck (he won an Oscar for the role) as the country lawyer who defends a black man on a trumped-up murder charge. Peck's icy remove works for once—as a kid's idea of a parent, he's frighteningly effective. With Mary Badham (John's sister), Philip Alford, and Robert Duvall.
