This wonderful movie has been adapted from Harper Lee's original novel.
Harper Lee (April 28, 1926 – February 19, 2016)
Harper Lee's enduring classic is a novel to be buried with. The film adaptation is equally classic. Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch may be celluloid's finest father. Hard to believe it lost out Best Picture, even when matched with an epic like Lawrence of Arabia!

Scout: "Jem is up in a tree, he said he won't come down until you agree to play football with the Methodists."
Atticus Finch: I remember when my daddy gave me that gun. He told me that I should never point it at anything in the house; and that he'd rather I'd shoot at tin cans in the backyard. But he said that sooner or later he supposed the temptation to go after birds would be too much, and that I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted - if I could hit 'em; but to remember it was a sin to kill a mockingbird.
Atticus Finch: Well, I reckon because mockingbirds don't do anything but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat people's gardens, don't nest in the corncrib, they don't do one thing but just sing their hearts out for us.
