When Mr. Gilmer gets up to cross examine Tom Robinson, he walks past the seated Atticus at the defense table. You can only see the arm of the person as he walks by the table.

One of the most memorable and wonderful movies of the 20th century.
"To Kill A Mockingbird" is truly a much loved and critically-acclaimed film. It is a perfect portrayal of childhood innocence, racial prejudice, moral tolerance and courage.

This is a must see for anyone of any age.
