30 Day Film Challenge/Day 10

Today the challenge is to find a film that is also a book I love. Several came to mind, but the one that stuck was “To Kill a Mockingbird”, the book written by Harper Lee about racial inequality in a small town in Alabama.

The book and the film are both worthy of reading and watching again. One might think that in the years that have passed since the story was set in the 1930s that we would have learned to be better citizens of a world where people are treated fairly and equally. Unfortunately, that has not been the case.

I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the tenth day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!

  1. Great choice, Maggie. I am going with two books that were made into films by Alfred Hitchcock. They are two of the few films he made that I really like.
    1) Strangers On A Train, by Patricia Highsmith.

    2) Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier.

    I can’t choose between them, sorry. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. ‘Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me. There was a padlock and a chain upon the gate.’
        Perhaps one of the best opening sentences in fiction. :


  2. I have just convinced my granddaughter to read “Rebecca.” Neither of us has seen the film, so after reading Pete’s comments I know that we will.


  3. I agree great book great film 💜
    My favourite book/ film though the book is best is The Lovely Bones by American writer Alice Sebold. It is the story of a teenage girl who, after being raped and murdered, tells her story.


  4. Great choice! I enjoyed both the book and the film. Glad I read the book first. It’s one of the few books I can re-read.
