Product Description

Proclaimed one of the 100 Greatest American Movies of All Time by the American Film Institute, To Kill A Mockingbird is now available as a 2-disc set. Hollywood icon Gregory Peck won the Best Actor Academy Award for his brilliant portrayal of the courageous but understated hero Atticus Finch. The film, based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about innocence, strength and conviction, captured the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar. To Kill A Mockingbird boasts Robert Duvall's screen debut as Boo Radley and Mary Badham's unforgettable, Oscar-nominated performance as Miss Jean Louise "Scout" Finch. Watch it and remember why "it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."

Additional Features

The two-disc Legacy Series edition of To Kill a Mockingbird offers a definitive tribute to this timeless classic and the Hollywood star who embodied its enduring family values. Disco 1 offers the film itself (digitally remastered), along with four features that honor the late Gregory Peck. In an archival clip from the Academy Awards ceremony in 1963, Sophia Loren presents Peck with his Oscar® for Best Actor, and Peck's acceptance speech is characteristically humble and dignified. In accepting his Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute in 1989, Peck recalls an amusing anecdote from fellow actor James Mason to express his appreciation for "the later years" and his intentions to work for as long as he can in the profession he loves. In the posthumous Academy tribute to Peck, daughter Cecilia gives a heartfelt appreciation of Peck's devotion as a father and husband, and it serves as an object lesson to parents everywhere on how consistent involvement in child-raising should be every parent's top priority. As Mary Badham recalls in "Scout Remembers," it was this quality of Peck's that made him a real-life embodiment of Atticus Finch, resulting in a close relationship (in part because Badham had lost her own parents at an early age) that lasted until Peck's death in 2003. The feature-length commentary by director Robert Mulligan and producer Alan Pakula is a bit sparse at times, but it's an essential record of the film's production history.

Disc 2 is packed with two exceptional feature-length documentaries. Coproduced by Cecilia Peck and directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple, A Conversation with Gregory Peck is a home movie in the best sense of the word: An intimate portrait of the actor in his later years, as he tours the U.S. with his one-man stage show of reminiscent storytelling, it also features visits to Ireland (where Martin Scorsese also appears at a benefit for the Irish film industry) and Paris (where French President Jacques Chirac expresses his affection for Peck's French-born wife, Veronique, at a posh state dinner). The film ends with birth of Peck's grandson Harper (named after To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee), and the emotional connection between "Atticus" and happy grandpa Peck is a moment that could melt anyone's heart. And while the literary conceits of Fearful Symmetry are a bit too precious for a making-of documentary, it's clearly a labor of love for writer-director Charles Kiselyak, originally produced for the previous Mockingbird DVD, released in 1998. In addition to providing a thorough production history and interviews with all the major cast and crew, the 90-minute documentary weaves an emotional connection between the film's enduring greatness and the real-life residents of Monroeville, Alabama, who serves as the inspiration for Lee's classic novel. The Legacy Series DVD also includes 11 postcard-sized reproductions of Mockingbird movie posters, nicely packaged in a sleeve-pocket envelope. --Jeff Shannon
