To Kill a Mockingbird
I watched all of To Kill a Mockingbird last night on Turner's Classic Movies (TCM), which I hadn't seen since high school. Like everyone back then, I had to read it during my Freshman year. And instead of reading it, of course, I just rented the movie and probably got the Cliff Notes as well, which I did a lot of in high school. But what a great movie. Gregory Peck does such a great job in the role of Atticus Finch, that it is hard to imagine him as anyone else. It's always, "hey, isn't that Atticus Finch playing Lincoln", or "why doesn't that Atticus sell his wire and cable business to Louie? But anyway, the world could use a few more people like Atticus Finch.
