Trivia:

In recalling his courtroom scene in To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), Gregory Peck recalled the vital contribution of Bill Walker, who was cast as Reverend Sikes. "All the black people in the balcony stood," Peck noted. "My two kids didn't. When Bill said to them 'Stand up, children, your father is passing,' he wrapped up the Academy Award for me." See more »
