The 40 Best films of Gregory Peck.by jacobyjhn-18-315763 | created - 11 Aug 2011 | updated - 25 Jan 2015 | Public
Kind hearted, generous and wonderful Gregory Peck, in his marvelous film career produced a number of indelible characters, including Atticus Finch, in the timeless "To Kill a Mockingbird." Each performance by Mr. Peck was sheer excellence. Eldred Gregory Peck hails from my own hometown, San Diego, having been born and raised in the beautiful La Jolla district of San Diego. Along with gentle fellow citizens and actors, Dorothy McGuire and Mel Ferrer, Peck founded the wonderful La Jolla Playhouse. His memory is revered by his family, his many friends and his community. Here are 40 of my favorite films of the great Gregory Peck.
