Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his children against prejudice.
Despite the novel's winning the Pulitzer Prize, the studios were not interested in securing the film rights, since they felt that it lacked action and romance (with the absence of a love story), and that the villain does not get a big comeuppance. ... ...
If you just learn a single trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.
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.
