FUN FACTS:

* Dil was modeled after author Harper Lee's childhood friend, Truman Capote.

* Robert Duvall stayed out of the sun for six weeks and died his hair blond for the role of Boo Radley who, according to the story, spent much of his life locked in a cellar.

*Although Gregory Peck's inspirational performance as Atticus Finch turned out to be a perfect highlight to his long career, Rock Hudson was actually the studio's first choice for the role.
