SF360: Mary Badham, on a “Mockingbird” mission

SF360: Mary Badham, on a "Mockingbird" mission

I was six months old when I went to my first movie–and I swear I remember images from it. You see, I sometimes have flashes of shots from “To Kill a Mockingbird,” but all of them are upside-down. My mother tells me that I saw the film from a bassinette on the theater seat–thus began my life-long love affair with the film. I grew up in Alabama, which is also the setting of the book and the film. Every year, one of the three television stations we received would show “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Laura Irvine speaks with Mary Badham in SF360.
