The Quintessence of: Gregory Peck......!!!


Recommended Posts

*_Per Wikipedia:_*

 

 

*Gregory Peck was an Academy Award-winning and four-time Golden Globe Award-winning American film actor. He was one of 20th Century Fox's most popular film stars, from the 1940s to the 1960s, and played important roles well into the 1990s. One of his most notable performances was as Atticus Finch in the 1962 film version of "To Kill a Mockingbird", for which he won his Academy Award. President Lyndon Johnson honored Peck with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1969 for his lifetime humanitarian efforts.*

 

 

*In 1999, the American Film Institute named Peck among the Greatest Male Stars of All Time, ranking at #12.*

 

 

 

*For his contribution to the motion picture industry, Gregory Peck has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at: 6100 Hollywood Blvd.*

His character from To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), Atticus Finch, was voted the greatest screen hero of all time by the American Film Institute in May 2003, only two weeks before his death (beating out Indiana Jones, who was placed second, and James Bond who came third).-- from IMDb

 

And I never knew he was of Armenian heritage!

 

One movie that is seldom mentioned is *The Great Sinner* (1949), very loosely based on Dostoyevsky's short novel, The Gambler. I'm not sure it's that good a movie, having only managed to catch parts of it when it's been on TCM. ( And see some bad user comments).

But the combination of elements certainly captures my imagination.

 

Gregory Peck! Ava Gardner! And what a cast.

Happy Birthday Mr. Peck!!! I love you! He is one of my favorite actors (tied for first place with William Powell and Ray Milland!) He was just AMAZING in every thing he did! Although it wasn't mentioned in your list I think one of his better roles was in "Spellbound"! He was so GOOD as the amnesia victim!!!!!

Kid,

 

Mongo used to have a Birthday thread that he posted to everyday which would list the famous and not so famous born on that day.

 

Perhaps you could retrieve it out of the archives and revieve it? It was a very popular thread.

Haha, kidding.

Oh, I just love Gregory! With his birthday being 2 days ago and all, it reminded me that I haven't seen very many of his films. I recently requested *Gentleman's Agreement* and *The Paradine Case* from the library. I can't wait to watch them!
