Goofs

During the courtroom scene, there is a close-up of Atticus (at 1:12:50) seated at his table during the prosecuting attorney's questioning of Mr. Ewell. In this shot, the film image is reversed (Atticus' hair and the position of the spectators behind him reveal this). In this same shot, the light at the back of the courtroom is turned on; both before and after this shot, it is off. Actually, the light that is on in the close-up shot (at 1:12:50) is not the same light that is off in the wider shots of Atticus and Tom seated at the defense table (such as at 1:12:07). In the close-up shot the light that is on is five to ten feet from the double door court room entrance with no windows visible in the shot. In the wider shots, the light that is off is five to ten feet from a window with no doors visible in the shot. The close up was flipped accidentally or intentionally either "because" or "so that" the resulting frames more closely resembles the frames of the wider shots.
