Last night, the USA network aired the restored version of To Kill a Mockingbird, in honor of the film’s 50th anniversary. President Obama even introduced the film, adapted from Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. I’ll be showing this film next week in class, so it just feels right to have a bit of it here too.
“I simply want to tell you that there are some men in this world who were born to do our unpleasant jobs for us. Your father’s one of them.” Maudie Atkinson, To Kill a Mockingbird
