As the literary world thought it had heard it all from Harper Lee, another novel appears.   This documentary takes us on a trip from the publishers in New York to the streets of Monroeville, Alabama in telling the story of Harper Lee, her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, and the surprisingly recent publication of To Set a Watchman.
Harper Lee:  From Mockingbird to Watchman was directed by Mary McDonagh Murphy, who gives us some background of both novels and the famous film starring Gregory Peck.  She brings the viewer as close as one can get to knowing Harper Lee, the southern racial setting in a small southern town and the characters in the film.
