When the rednecks from Old Sarum arrive at the jail alleyway to lynch Tom Robinson the rear shot of them approaching Atticus shows a very young lout in the group holding a rifle (at 1:02:19 in a light shirt with sleeves rolled to his biceps and no hat), but in all the following shots from the front he's nowhere to be found.

Older Scout: [narrating] I was to think of these days many times. Of Jem, and Dill, and Boo Radley, and Tom Robinson, and Atticus. He would be in Jem's room all night, and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning.

One of the most memorable and wonderful movies of the 20th century.
3 February 2001 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

"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. No other words can describe this film except marvellous. The film is so wonderfully done that the audience actually feels as if they were in Alabama during the 1930s. This is a must see for anyone of any age.
