A digitally restored version of Hollywood classic, To Kill A Mockingbird, will be screened by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1962 film.

The digital restoration of the film has been done by Universal Pictures. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee, the film became as much of a classic as its source. Produced by Alan J Pakula and directed by Robert Mulligan, the film features Peck as a Depression-era lawyer struggling against a prejudiced system to exonerate an African-American man falsely accused of rape. The film won three Oscars.
