The Director of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD has passed.


"To Kill A Mockingbird director Robert Mulligan has died at the age of 83. The moviemaker, who received an Oscar nomination for helming the 1962 drama, passed away at his Connecticut home on Friday after suffering a heart attack. Mulligan began his career working on live TV in New York in the early 1950s before graduating to movies in 1957 with Fear Strikes Out, the story of baseball pitcher Jimmy Piersall. He went on to direct over 20 pictures including 1978's Bloodbrothers and 1991's The Man in the Moon, the film debut of Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon."
