To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
    by Jon Osborne, Miss Liberty's Guide to Film and Video, 2001
"Social tolerance is the theme here, as events in a southern Depression town are used to show a young girl's development of a live-and-let-live attitude toward those unlike herself. ... [She] is told that 'It's a sin to kill a mockingbird,' because mockingbirds do no harm to others. By the end of the film, she has transferred tha concept to human relations: doing harm to harmless others, no matter how different they might be, is likewise wrong. This is a theme that libertarians will certainly like, and it has as well a suggestion of the nonagression principle."
