35 mm!

1962, Universal, 129 min, USA, Dir: Robert Mulligan

Hollywood pro Robert Mulligan pulls off the rarest of achievements with this adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel: He brings a great book to the screen and improves upon it. Gregory Peck is superb as a small-town lawyer who defends a black man accused of rape. But what distinguishes the film is director Mulligan's deft use of subjective camerawork to approximate the point of view of the children who struggle to understand the case. Peck, screenwriter Horton Foote and a team of art directors that included the legendary Henry Bumstead deservedly won Oscars for their work on this timeless classic. Robert Duvall makes his feature debut as Boo Radley.
