Classic Film: To Kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird (1962, 129 minutes, B&W), directed by Robert Mulligan. Based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning book of 1960. Atticus Finch is a lawyer in a racially divided Alabama town in the 1930's. He agrees to defend a young black man who is accused of raping a white woman. Many of the townspeople try to get Atticus to pull out of the trial, but he decides to go ahead. How will the trial turn out- an will it change any of the racial tension in the town?
