Original Universal Pictures Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the Robert Mulligan dramatic masterpiece, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962) starring Gregory Peck, Brock Peters, Mary Badham, Phillip Alford, and Robert Duvall. Based on Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, this is the story of Atticus Finch, a lawyer in a Depression-era Alabama town, who defends a black man against an undeserved rape charge and his kids against prejudice. The story is told through the eyes of a feisty six-year-old tomboy named Scout. Although certainly not the first film to explore the experiences of children and their own personal growth, the film stands out because of the sheer honesty and natural performances of the child actors portraying these rich characters. The American Film Institute has named the character of Atticus Finch the number one cinema hero of all time. Indeed, Gregory Peck won the Oscar for Best Actor and always said that Finch was the most favorite role of his career. In many ways Peck synthesized characteristics of bravery, honesty, and humility that he had brought to other films like THE BIG COUNTRY and THE YEARLING. The film was nominated for seven other Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. Horton Foote won the Oscar for Best Screenplay for his outstanding adaptation of the Harper Lee novel. This original three sheet poster is linen-backed and in very fine condition. MovieArt also has the title available in six sheet format.
