To Kill A Mocking Bird

To Kill A Mocking Bird
Rs. 499/-
Gregory Peck, Mary Badham, Philip Alford, John Megna
Directed By: Robert Mulligan

Upgraded to Dolby Digital 5.1, this classic has been cleaned up of all its spots and blemishes on its black and white film. The prized film also plays on Dolby 2.0 Mono, which should get you as close to the original audio tracks if you want to check out how it really sounded back in 1962

Originally released on DVD in 2000 and again in 2005, the film is now in its 50th Anniversary edition, but the copy we have by the label in India did not commemorate this big event by releasing a special edition of this groundbreaking film which is an adaptation of Harper Lee's semi autobiographical Pulitzer Prize-winning 1960 novel of the same name. The affable Gregory Peck's portrayal of noble Atticus Finch is truly charismatic. As the lead character he carries the story with pure class, and even though we watch it in its original shade on Black and White film, the film is enduring nevertheless.

In a small town of Maycomb in Alabama in the 1930s, Atticus a widowed lawyer is trying to raise his children Jem (Phillip Alford) and Scout (Mary Badham) while defending a black man Tom Robinson accused of raping a white teenager. The kids have their own story going for them with the inquisitive Jem and the tomboyish Scout and their friend Dill (John Megna) keeping a watch on an old house in their neighborhood owned by a mysterious neighbor Boo Radley (Robert Duvall). As much as he can, Atticus tries to keep the kids away from the court and the case he is working on, but when the whole white community goes against him, his kids know that their father’s life is in danger. Their world is turned upside down and the only way they can help out is to follow him everywhere he goes. Will Robinson get a fair trial and will the kids find the mysterious neighbor?
