Miss Jean Louise, Stand Up

"Miss Jean Louise. Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passing."
—Rev. Sykes (from To Kill a Mockingbird)


  1. This gave me goosebumps, haven't seen this movie in many, many years. I guess dads didn't come much better than Atticus Finch :)

    1. They sure didn't Doug. Thank you for the comment. Atticus was the ideal father. He's based I believe on Harper Lee's own father. I loved every minute of that film and every paragraph of the novel. I also have the audiobook read by Sissy Spacek. Her voice is just glorious. A real treat. :)

  2. I've got my 16 year old daughter reading the book and the film on the recorder for once she has read it... I remember the massive impression it made on me as a teenager when I read/saw it

    don't forget Atticus shooting the mad dog. Do we really know our fathers?
