Mary Badham Played 'Scout' in Classic Film
Mary Badham, who played "Scout" in the 1962 film ,"To Kill A Mockinbird" recently visited the area on an educational outreach program directed toward elementary students. You may link to the St. Augustine Record story Here. For some reason the reporter, throughout the article refers to Harper Lee's title as "Mockingbird". We suppose that this is in the interest of brevity. As huge fans of The film and the book we think that perhaps it would have been fitting to use the whole title. This movie was ranked #2 on the American Film Institute's 100 Most Inspiring Movies of All Time. We may start referring to the local paper as "Aug Rec".
