A timeless classic! Factoids: 1) Mary Badham and Gregory Peck became close during filming and kept in contact for the rest of his life. He always called her Scout (2) Brock Peters delivered Gregory Peck's eulogy at his funeral and burial, June 16, 2003. Peck defended Peters in the movie. *Scan your old memories with Pic Scanner app for iPhone
