The part Gregory Peck played in this was reportedly his most favorite role. And he does a marvelous job of it too, as Atticus Finch, the Southern lawyer who agrees to take on the case of a black man falsely accused of rape. The story, from Harper Lee’s classic novel, is in itself wonderful. It’s filled with brilliant and iconic sequences, just a couple memorable ones being the dramatic courtroom scenes where Finch tries his best to make the prejudiced townsfolk see sense, and the intriguing side-plot of his children’s growing curiosity and involvement with their eccentric, hermit-like neighbor that no one’s ever actually seen. He is, of course, Arthur (Boo) Radley, played by none other than Robert Duvall in his feature film debut.
Would I recommend? Yes, without a doubt, to anyone and everyone who knows how to enjoy a great film.
If you like children’s story, you would love this movie about how the world is shaped from their eyes.
If you don’t … you may find some entertainment in the picture of Southern US and the racial fight that was taking place at the time …
A Healing View of Fatherhood
I’m surprised that there aren’t more comments on Peck’s amazing depiction of Atticus Finch, the father. In this era of absent fathers, preoccupied fathers, abusive fathers, immature fathers, etc, etc, Peck’s Finch gives us all a soothing view of the best of fatherhood. Where else do we get to watch a man sit up with his ill child, stand firm in his convictions, show patience and gentleness with his children, demonstrate an appropriate level of humility, communicate righteous values to his children, and give his children a picture of integrity to emulate. Every time I view this film I wonder how Peck was able to pull this off. Every time I view this film, it gives me hope for the future of fatherhood.
“To Kill a Mackingbird” — Memorable Because of What It Doesn’t Purport to Being
After forty-three years, “To Kill a Mockingbird” (TKAM) remains one of the most effective testimonials to the ravages of ignorance and prejudice ever recorded on film. Asking myself why this gracefully paced narrative has left such an indelible impression on so many, I’ve concluded it’s because the film isn’t about what most of its supporters and detractors claim it’s about. Not about race or prejudice? . . . No. At its core, TKAM is about “neighbors” and “community”, which concept forms the basis for the gravity of its message in the matter of Tom Robinson.
Other films have followed on the familiar theme of racial bigotry and its well-documented devastations. These films have been consistently less effective because we are not asked to think so much, or to connect the history depicted with the histories of our own lives and our own communities.
I’ve performed in two stage versions of TKAM, neither of which benefited from the brilliant input of screenwriter, Horton Foote. Both plays focus, almost exclusively, on the racial element of the story. They, like so many films of later years, come off as “heavy-handed” or “in-your-face” regarding this element. Well . . . “If you think this way — you’re bad.” End of story. In TKAM (the film), we see a community of poor, unique, and apparently respectable people helping one another through a Depression. In stark contrast (and beautifully prepared by the film’s creators) the injustices meted out to Tom Robinson and his family represent a dramatic anachronism of unthinkable proportions. And, it’s as routine, in this gentle Southern community, as a child’s fear of a mysterious neighbor, or a shy but happy exchange of hickory nuts for legal services rendered. Memorable? Most emphatically. Think about it. It’s what director Mulligan wants us to do.
