One of the oldest bonds between a father and daughter in film is also one of the most fondly remembered. Widower Atticus is the father to son, Jem and daughter, Scout. Of the two, Scout is the more precocious and she constantly peppers her dad with questions.

And Atticus has wonderful answers for her queries. Over the course of a sometimes tragic story, the lawyer teaches his daughter a number of lessons. The films became a symbol of forgiveness, empathy, and understanding.
