The film version of Harper Lee's classic novel is also a classic film. This scene is probably the reason why Gregory Peck is considered one of the best film actors of all time. It's an electrifying, impassioned speech which makes doubly frustrating that the all-white male jury still came up with that verdict in a subsequent scene. I do think this speech played a little role in the civil rights movement, even just a little bit.
