What to Watch on Saturday: An Obama introduction for 'To Kill a Mockingbird'

To Kill A Mockingbird (8pm, USA) - A special introduction from President Obama marks the 50th anniversary of this Oscar-winning classic film, which was adapted from Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. In the film, Gregory Peck plays Atticus Finch, a small town lawyer who defends a black man wrongly accused of raping a white woman in 1930s Alabama. Robert Duvall made his screen debut in this film, as the mysterious Boo Radley. In other words, YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS, even if you've seen it before. The President also introduced the film at a special White House screening on Thursday, at which Washington, D.C., schoolchildren and the widow of Gregory Peck were in attendance.
