While Atticus gets his papers together in the courtroom after the verdict you see a water glass next to the pitcher on the judge's desk (at 1:42:43). In the next shot, as he walks out, there is no glass, just the pitcher (at 1:42:48 and 1:43:06). Similarly, at 1:10:58, the glass is setting slightly behind the pitcher as Sheriff Tate confirms Mayella was beaten about her right eye, but is not there at 1:11:07 as Atticus walks up to Sheriff Tate. Note that when the glass sets further back than the pitcher, it can be concealed by the pitcher when viewed from some angles. See more »

One of the most memorable and wonderful movies of the 20th century.
"To Kill A Mockingbird" is truly a much loved and critically-acclaimed film.
It is a perfect portrayal of childhood innocence, racial prejudice, moral
tolerance and courage. No other words can describe this film except
marvellous. The film is so wonderfully done that the audience actually feels
as if they were in Alabama during the 1930s. This is a must see for anyone
of any age.
