Everyone knows the story of To Kill A Mockingbird, but this movie allows it to come to life in such an incredible way. Gregory Peck does an incredible adaptation of Atticus Finch, the Southern lawyer who attempts to keep peace while managing his internal conflicts with society.
This movie perfectly sets the story in the small Alabama town that gets wrapped up in a landmark case surrounding the accused Tom Robinson. If you are looking for a memorable, family movie- then this has got it all. Teaches incredible lessons, while perfectly balancing an unforgettable story about loving one's neighbor.
Gregory Peck embodies Atticus Finch and the bonus features reveal such tidbits as his meeting of Harper Lee during filming of the movie began a lifetime relationship between her and the Peck family. Haper Lee was a notorious recluse, so this was quite an interesting bit of news.
The 50th Anniversary edition includes 2 discs, one for the movie and one for the Bonus Features. The worst of the features is "The Excerpt From The Academy Tribute To Gregory Peck". There's nothing new here. It's appears to occur after Mr. Peck's death and when Harper Lee is introduced, the camera is blocked by people's heads. Terrible! Plus, all you want to do the entire time Cecelia Peck is talking is brush her hair out of her face! So annoying!
The best features are: "A Conversation With Gregory Peck" and "Scout Remembers". These offer fun insights into filming and how cast members were selected. Plus it's fun to see Scout all grown up!
"The American Film Institute Lifetime Achievement Award" is only Gregory Peck's Acceptance Speech, not the entire program. Although his speech is quite insightful as to the man, given what he chooses to talk about.
"Fearful Symmetry" is a good look at the overall making of the film and repeats a bit of what occurs in "A Conversation With Gregory Peck" and "Scout Remembers".
"100 Years of Universal: Restoring the Classics" is not specific to "To Kill a Mockingbird." It's interesting in its own right regarding the general loss of film and importance of restoration. For those of us who love older movies, we can appreciate that the importance of restoration was discovered before more of the history of film was lost.
