Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his children against prejudice.
Robert Duvall stayed out of the sun for six weeks and dyed his hair blonde for the role of Boo Radley, who, according to the story, spent much of his life as a recluse. The character of Arthur "Boo" Radley is based in part on Harper Lee's recollection of Alfred "Son" ... ...
Why there he is, Mr. Tate. He can tell you his name...
Scout: Hey, Boo.
Atticus Finch: Miss Jean Louise, Mr. Arthur Radley. I believe he already knows you.
After Atticus speaks with Mrs. Dubose at her porch, Scout, Jem and Dill walk away with Atticus towards the Finch home (at 0:13:00) while the camera pauses on Mrs. Dubose pondering Atticus' words. When the camera cuts back to the Finches (at 0:13:05) they have walked over to their house, up their sidewalk, and are at the steps to their porch while Dill has gone past their sidewalk, past their driveway and is standing by the rope swing in their side yard looking back at the Finches as if he were watching them arrive home. It looks awkward, as if it were taken from another scene where they were arriving home, but it could have happened that way if Dill were too shy to accompany them up their sidewalk without being invited (which, given Dill's personality, doesn't seem very likely).
The title is revealed in a child's crayon rubbing.
