* 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.

* {{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, [[spoiler: like Boo Radley]].

* Fun Fact: The movie adaptation is Franchise/{{Superman}}'s favorite movie.
* LifeImitatesArt: At a couple of points in the movie, Scout, who is only just learning to read, sits on Atticus' lap to visually follow along as he reads aloud. ''Decades'' later, real-life educators began recommending this very technique to parents who wanted to help their youngsters learn to read.



** Universal wanted Creator/RockHudson to play Atticus in the film, but he was deemed too young for the part. Creator/SpencerTracy was the director and producer's first choice, but he was unavailable. Creator/JamesStewart was also offered the part, reportedly second, but told the producers he believed the script was "too liberal," and feared the film would be controversial.
