Flick Pick: To Kill A Mockingbird

To Kill A Mockingbird
(Universal, 1962)

Gregory Peck in the role of a lifetime - as essentially himself - in this adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel of the Jim Crow South. Both grand and endearing, with echoes of a time long gone by, and the most epic courtroom scenes in cinematic history, as proven by vote after vote. Also provided the screen debut of Robert Duvall in a pivotal role without a single spoken line.
Best Actor (Peck), Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Art Direction-B&W
