The youngsters lead a carefree life, racing about the town, jeering at eccentric Mrs. Dubose and frightening themselves and their new friend, six-year-old Dill Harris, with exaggerated stories about Arthur "Boo" Radley, a supposedly mentally handicapped neighbor whom they have never seen. When Atticus agrees to represent Tom Robinson, a black man accused of raping a young white woman, Mayella Violet Ewell, the children must defend themselves against the racist taunts of their classmates [...]."--American Film Institute catalog

Riot in cell block 11 by Don Siegel( Visual )

2 editions published in 1954 in English and Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While exhibiting some of the basic strengths of American cinema, this film is also something of a maverick. As a prison film, it stands out for its success in balancing the uncompromising presentation of the issues militating against prison reform and those of taut action drama, of documentary and melodrama. Freed from the demands of roles for star players, it is one of the few American films in which the focus is single mindedly on the confrontation between two groups - the authorities and the protesting prisoners - constituting two power blocs. The pitfalls of a too easy liberalism were avoided at the insistence of producer Walter Wanger, who himself had been a prison inmate, which coalesced with Siegel's uneasy relationship with the liberal ethos and that of individualism evident in many of his other films
