The timeless classic still has the special features from the prior DVD and laserdisc edition, but also includes a new HD featurette about Universal’s more recent restoration work.

If there was ever a film to be considered a classic, it would be To Kill A Mockingbird. The adaptation of Harper Lee’s 1960 novel presents a small southern town in the 1930s. The Blu-ray edition shows a high level of care with film elements to create the HD transfer.

Home Theater Forum’s Kevin EK reviewed the Blu-ray release and had these thoughts:

Video

The detail visible in multiple scenes is impressive – from the stripes of Gregory Peck’s courtroom suit to the material of Scout’s school dress to a late shot through the window of the Finch home where the foreground window lace can practically be touched.

Audio

It’s a quiet mix, as is appropriate for the movie, and most of the sound is in the front channels.  But there’s some subtle work in the surrounds, and nothing that will take you out of the experience.
