At the heart of both the film and Harper Lee’s much-loved source novel is a child’s-eye view of the imperfect ways of the adult world. Six-year-old Scout (Mary Badham) watches her father Atticus Finch (Peck) raise his dignified fists against bigotry, deceit, injustice and a symbolic rabid dog as he argues his doomed case in a small-town courtroom, in defence of the falsely accused African-American Tom Robinson (Brock Peters). But eloquence and virtue are no match for generations of race hatred and petty motives, as Scout learns at the cost of childhood illusions.
