Not Rated | | Crime, Drama
Atticus Finch, a lawyer in the Depression-era South, defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge, and his children against prejudice.
Official credited film debut of Robert Duvall, who had no dialogue.
Mr. Tate was right.
Atticus Finch: What do you mean?
Scout: Well, it would be sort of like shooting a mockingbird, wouldn't it?
Similar to her "close up" conversation with Jem about retrieving his breeches, Scout mouths Atticus' next lines when begging to be allowed a ride to visit Tom Robinson's family before the court case (from 0:44:27 to 0:44:57). The lip movement is slight and would be mumbling were she speaking, but when Atticus says "Promise to stay in the car while I talk with Helen Robinson" the movement does seem to match "Helen Robinson".
