You’re about to read the most amazing paper ever written. The purpose of this paper is to compare and contrast TO KILL A MOCKING BIRD the novel vs. TKAM the movie. TKAM was written by Harper Lee in 1960, the movie was made in 1963. There are some significant parts missing from movie. These scenes are when Scout and Jem go to the black church with Calpurnia, the school day when the Ewells and the Cunninghams are shown, and how Aunt Alexandra seems to have gotten lost on the way to the movie lot.
