“To Kill a Mockingbird” – A Classic Tale of Southern Discomfort

This presentation, lasting a little more than an hour and including PowerPoint images and film clips, takes a look at the 1962 Southern classic that earned Gregory Peck his only Best Actor Academy Award.

Larry will talk about the Great Depression-era drama’s exceptional acting ensemble, including Robert Duvall in his debut big screen performance as “Boo” Radley, and Mary Badham, who drew a Best Supporting Oscar nomination at the age of 10 as Scout. 

There’s much to admire and investigate about a classic drama based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and adapted for the screen by beloved Texas author Horton Foote.
