London: Heinemann, 1960. First Edition - British. Signed by Mary Badham, the actress who played Scout Finch in the classic motion picture adaptation, with a quotation handwritten by Ms. Badham of her dialogue from the film: “Well, it would be like shooting a mockingbird wouldn’t it?” Scout Finch - Mary Badham.” The line is spoken by Scout towards the end of the film when Sheriff Tate and Atticus (Gregory Peck) agree that Boo Radley should not be brought forth for killing Bob Ewell while Radley was defending Scout and her brother, as Ewell had been attacking the children. Atticus asks her if she understands why they are doing this, and with her growing awareness and maturity she replies with the above line. Mary Badham gave one of the finest performances by a child in motion picture history and she was nominated for an Academy Award. Both the novel and the film are told through the eyes of Scout making this book a very charming piece with the signed quotation. About fine copy with the barest hint of edge wear in a near fine bright dust jacket with some very minor fading at the spine. Laid in is a color photograph of Ms. Badham holding a copy of the Fortieth Anniversary Edition of To Kill a Mockingbird which was released in 1999. (Inventory #: 20951E)
