10 | An utterly moving film, made perfect by the outstanding performance of Gregory Peck. Must see
'To Kill a Mockingbird' is one of the best books ever written but this film does it justice. The performances ...
I'm real sorry they picked you to defend that nigger that raped my Mayella. I don't know why I didn't kill him myself instead of goin' to the sheriff. That would have saved you and the sheriff and the taxpayers lots of trouble...
While Atticus gets his papers together in the courtroom after the verdict you see a water glass next to the pitcher on the judge's desk (at 1:42:43). In the next shot, as he walks out, there is no glass, just the pitcher (at 1:42:48 and 1:43:06). Similarly, at 1:10:58, the glass is setting slightly behind the pitcher as Sheriff Tate confirms Mayella was beaten about her right eye, but is not there at 1:11:07 as Atticus walks up to Sheriff Tate. Note that when the glass sets further back than the pitcher, it can be concealed by the pitcher when viewed from some angles.
The title is revealed in a child's crayon rubbing.
