To Kill a Mockingbird
-Atticus Finch is a lawyer in 1932 Alabama. His latest assignment is to defend a black man named Tom Robinson who was accused of raping an ignorant, white redneck woman named Mayella Ewell.

Did You Know?
-Finch was the middle name of author Harper Lee
-Mary Badham and Gregory Peck grew close during the movie
-For the role of Boo Radley, Robert Duvall stayed out of the sun for 6 weeks and dyed his hair blonde. In the book, it says that Boo only left the house at night because the sun hurt his eyes. This would suggest that Boo might have some form of Albinism, which is very white skin due to no pigment, no pigment in the eyes or hair
-On the day of his death, Brock Peters, who played Tom Robinson, delivered the eulogy at Gregory Peck's funeral
