I think the court scene is the one part that is virtually the same as the book. The scene was considered to be long for a movie but Gregory Peck, in particular, insisted that it have as much of the drama and nuances as the novel. The themes of respect between Atticus and the Negro population as well as the obvious travesty of justice play out in much the same way in both the book and the movie. Even the subtext of Mayella as a victim of rape (by her father) can be picked up in both versions.
