Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book and movie character. He is a model of manhood to me. (And he was created by a woman.)
Atticus was powerfully portrayed by Gregory Peck, who said it was his favorite role of his career.
I just read that Brock Peters read Gregory Peck’s eulogy. Mr.Peters is the actor who played the man Atticus defended in To Kill a Mockingbird.
What fitting tribute to a great man.
