* HeyItsThatGuy: Boo Radley is played by Robert Duvall in the movie (his film debut).
** So, [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0676349/ the man]] that is falsely accused of rape survives into the 23rd century to become Admiral of Starfleet, only to [[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome witness the planet he was put in charge of be nearly destroyed by an intergalactic probe]], and then [[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry be put on trial AGAIN]] for trying to incite a war between a dying race that stands against every one of his values? '''''I'''''-rony!
** But he also [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine ran a Cajun restaurant in New Orleans]] and fathered the Emissary of the Prophets, so that's all right.
** More importantly, he became [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman's tech man]].
** As well as [[WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo CHRONOS, MASTER OF ALL TIME!]]

* WriteWhoYouKnow: Scout was based on Harper Lee's childhood, Atticus on her lawyer father, Jem on her four-year older brother, and Dill on her childhood friend Truman Capote. Boo Radley was based on one of her neighbors, and Tom Robinson was the amalgam of several cases. Ultimately everyone in the book is based off of someone from Lee's childhood. The townspeople were not amused.
** However, the book was VindicatedByHistory in Monroeville (Lee's hometown). They perform a stage version of it every year with AudienceParticipation for the courtroom scene: the audience is segregated as they were in the courtroom, and twelve men from the crowd are selected as the jury.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally Lee wrote a book called ''Go Set a Watchman'' about an adult Scout coming to terms with life in the South as the Civil Rights Movement begins to pick steam. However, her publisher/editor was more intrigued by the childhood flashbacks and asked her to rewrite the book based on those scenes, which became ''To Kil A Mockingbird''. Decades later, the manuscript for ''Go Set a Watchman'' was rediscovered and published, likely without the now-elderly Lee's knowledge or consent.

* {{Woolseyism}}: The Italian title of the book and movie is 'Il Buio Oltre La Siepe', 'The Darkness Beyond The Hedge', which is a pretty poetic description of the main theme of both works; not just racism, but also fear of the unknown, whatever is in that darkness that is just beyond the hedge that borders the world we do know.
