Long DescriptionRanked 34 on the American Film Institute's list of the 100 Greatest American Films, To Kill a Mockingbird is quite simply one of the finest family-oriented dramas ever made. A beautiful and deeply affecting adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee, the film retains a timeless quality that transcends its historically dated subject matter (racism in the Depression-era South) and remains powerfully resonant in present-day America with its advocacy of tolerance, justice, integrity, and loving, responsible parenthood. It's tempting to call this an important "message" movie that should be required viewing for children and adults alike, but this riveting courtroom drama is anything but stodgy or pedantic. As Atticus Finch, the small-town Alabama lawyer and widower father of two, Gregory Peck gives one of his finest performances with his impassioned defense of a black man (Brock Peters) wrongfully accused of the rape and assault of a young white woman. While his children, Scout (Mary Badham) and Jem (Philip Alford), learn the realities of racial prejudice and irrational hatred, they also learn to overcome their fear of the unknown as personified by their mysterious, mostly unseen neighbor Boo Radley (Robert Duvall, in his brilliant, almost completely nonverbal screen debut). What emerges from this evocative, exquisitely filmed drama is a pure distillation of the themes of Harper Lee's enduring novel, a showcase for some of the finest American acting ever assembled in one film, and a rare quality of humanitarian artistry (including Horton Foote's splendid screenplay and Elmer Bernstein's outstanding score) that seems all but lost in the chaotic morass of modern cinema. --Jeff Shannon

UPDATE: The upgrade completed at 7:30am. This was a little later than we had hoped but the upgrade went without any mojor issues and everything is back up and running.


We will be offline from about 8pm Pacific time on 10/5/2012 and expect to be back online by 6am on 10/6/2012.

There has been a lot of back end work done to make the database more robust and easier for company owners to use. These changes are substantial to both the database layout and the web interface.

To get all the changes in place we need to start by upgrading the database. This process alone takes several hours. While the database is being upgraded, we will move all of the web page files into place. This only takes a short time.

The site will come back online automatically as soon as the database finishes the automated upgrade sequence. Much of the data will be reformatted and that is what takes the builk of the time for this process.

Most users won't see any major change. The company block under each product will look a little different. Company owners and people using our site for automation will see drastic changes.

Things will load faster. Updating company information will be easier. Linking from a company to their products will be easier. Validating changes to company entries will be easier. In short, managing and accessing the data will be a lot easier.

It would be nice if this process could happen without taking the site down but that just wouldn't work. So we are doing it during the slowest usage time.

We put an alert link in the menu bar. Did you see this alert? Was it helpful? We will probably improve that alert process in the future as well.
