Goofs

Near the end of the film, right after Slim seats Georgette and Margaret Rose in his car, he closes the door and the camera along with the head of the camera operator can be briefly glimpsed in the rear passenger-side window; then in the next shot, as Slim is backing the car out, the entire crew, as well as their equipment, can be seen reflected on the driver side of his car.

The existential struggle of a honky-tonk orphan for a home.
26 November 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Beautiful textual telling of the search for recognition, family and a home by the master director Robert Mulligan, "To Kill A Mockingbird". Steve McQueen at his best with a brilliant supporting cast. A fitting and moving antithesis to the Disney formula.
