Front Row Classics Celebrates 60 Years of 'To Kill a Mockingbird' with Mary Badham

Front Row Classics is celebrating 100 episodes! We're incredibly grateful to our listeners for embracing us and supporting our efforts in keeping classic film alive.

Brandon and Eric are also celebrating the 60th anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird. This legendary film is beloved by multiple generations thanks to its lessons of love and empathy. We're thrilled to be joined by Scout herself, Mary Badham. Mary graciously recounts her memories of filming as well as her co-stars, including Gregory Peck who she still refers to as "Atticus." We also discuss her feelings on the film's lasting legacy.

Brandon Davis is the host of Classics and Zone-i-Sodes on the Front Row Network. A true fan of cinema history, Brandon holds the distinction of being the official film historian of the Network.
Eric Flick is a central Illinois native but spent several years living in New Orleans. He is the co-host of the Classics podcast, part of the Front Row Network. When not being a father and husband, Eric enjoys classic films, improv, sports and exercising.
