Soundtrack: To Kill a Mockingbird

We have reached #90 on the top 100 Soundtracks with To Kill a Mockingbird. Now every 7th grader and beyond should know this movie. We all had to read the novel and I am pretty certain many of the classrooms around the planet showed this fantastic classic. I must admit I don't recall the music but I will never forget the movie. I might just have to rent this one and maybe re-read the book. It's worth it!

The book was released in 1960 and the author, Harper Lee, won the Pulitzer Prize that year. Two years later the movie was released and won three Oscars: Best Actor, Best Art, Set Decoration (Black & White), and Best Screenplay - Adaptation. It was nominated for five more Oscars.
