Gregory Peck is astounding in the role of Atticus, Scout and Jem's father, and the other actors are great as well. This obviously doesn't exactly follow the book, but it conveys the main idea in a powerful way. Though color filming was an available resource, the film was shot in black and white to present the ideas in a more visual way.
