This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   During the trial, Tom Robinson uses is right hand to lift his limp hand onto the Bible. He just puts his right hand on the Bible.
   Mrs. Dubose calls Atticus a "nigger lover" in the presence of Scout and Jem. Bob Ewell is the one who calls him this and says it directly to his face. Jem is the one of the two children who hears Atticus called this. Scout is present, but she does not hear because she is asleep.
   As a result of his childhood accident, Tom's left arm is twelve inches shorter than his right. His arms appear to be the same length.
   Calpurnia goes to the court during the trial of Tom Robinson and tells Atticus that Jem and Scout are not at home. He then realizes that they have been sneaking into the colored balcony to watch him. She doesn't go and Atticus is seen walking home after the trial with Jem and Scout. No mention is made of if he knew they were there or not.
   Miss Rachel Haverford is Dill's aunt. Miss Stephanie Crawford is the town gossip and a friend of Atticus Finch. Rachel doesn't appear and her character is rolled into Stephanie Crawford.
