Horton Foote died today at age 92. If his name doesn't sound familar, he did one of the best adaptations of novel to film:
To Kill A Mockingbird
Here's Mayella Ewell at the courthouse
Foote also wrote the screenplay (and won the Oscar) for Tender Mercies. This is a musical scene when Dixie (Betty Buckley) sings "Over You"
And here's Mr. Foote talking about his characters.
