Gregory Peck – no other like him.
Tag Archives: To Kill A Mockingbird
Facebook always has questions and tests and opinion polls. Most of them silly . . . and of course time-consuming (I should be doing something – anything else – rather than spending time on Facebook!).
One recent message circulating was: “What is a movie phrase you recall?” [Or one that resonates with you . . .]
My first thought was a line from To Kill A Mockingbird – a courtroom scene when Gregory Peck (Atticus Finch) goes out of the courtroom and the entire balcony filled with black people stand in respect and the man next to Scout says: “Stand up, Miss Jean Louise. Your father is passing.”
That line still moves me.
Then – the funny way thoughts dart along the brain synapses from one subject to another, I thought “Atticus Finch” . . . “Peter Finch” . . . “Network” . . . “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
Another movie line that resonates.
