From Mary McReynolds, Arcadia, OK:
What a sad commentary on Ebert's belief system that he would slam a classic film based on a classic novel, neither of which would probably even be published or filmed today, given our politically correct biases. "To Kill a Mockingbird" is not about black people rising up in anger against injustice. That wasn't the book's intent, nor was it the film's intent. It was about Harper Lee's sublime vision and reporting of an era when good people were good, black or white, and bad people were bad of whatever stripe. There comes a time in every critic's life when he gets so full of himself that his reviews are all about him and his precious prejudices, truth be damned.
