TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD - SPE8016
This is Gregory Peck's beautifully told testament to courage, morality and the power of deep personal conviction, based on Harper Lee's 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. A widowed attorney with two young children accepts the significant challenge of defending a black man wrongly accused of rape in their racially divided small southern town.
Brock Peters is Tom Robinson, a field hand on trial for the rape of a white woman. Prejudice reigns supreme in this backwoods town where the trial takes place. And as an intolerant 1930's society rebels, Atticus prepares his defense while trying to raise his children.
