To Kill a Mockingbird--Great Directors Film Series
Director, Robert Mulligan, brought Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning book, To Kill a Mockingbird, to the screen in 1962. The film stars Gregory Peck as rural Alabama lawyer, Atticus Finch, the role which earned him the only acting Oscar of his career. "To Kill A Mockingbird is a much-loved, critically-acclaimed, classic trial film. It exhibits a dramatic tour-de-force of acting, a portrayal of childhood innocence, and a progressive, enlightened 60s message about racial prejudice, violence, moral tolerance and dignified courage" (Filmsite.org). Join us for this film at 1:00 PM. Light snacks will be served.
