Based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning book of 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird follows Atticus Finch, a lawyer in a racially divided Alabama town in the 1930s, through the words of his daughter Scout. He agrees to defend a young black man who is accused of raping a white woman. Many of the townspeople try to get Atticus to pull out of the trial, but he decides to go ahead. How will the trial turn out and will it change the racial tension in the town?

In 1995, the film was listed in the National Film Registry. It also ranks twenty-fifth on the American Film Institute's 10th anniversary list of the greatest American movies of all time. In 2003, AFI named Atticus Finch the greatest movie hero of the 20th century.

To Kill a Mockingbird marked the film debuts of Robert Duvall, William Windom, and Alice Ghostley.
