Guilty Pleasures Monday – Gregory Peck

from Roman Holiday - In the public domain according to WikipediaToday’s Guilty Pleasure is an oldie, but goodie – Gregory Peck.

It’s funny really. We were just talking about TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD the other day and this weekend what was on – TO KILL A MOCKINGBORD as well as CAPOTE. Watched the first (for which Peck won the Oscar), but fell asleep during the latter(because I was tired and not because it wasn’t a good movie! Note that Hoffman won the Oscar for his portrayal of Capote). Why the connection between the two? Harper Lee, the author of Mockingbird was good friends with Capote and assisted him while he was working on IN COLD BLOOD.

But back to Peck. I always found Peck to be so masculine and handsome. Very refined as well. Even when he was older, as in THE OMEN he had presence on the screen.

How about you? What’s your favorite Peck movie?

  1. 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄 😕 😐 😐 😐 😐 I actually have 2 both were watched by myself as a child on late night TV with my Dad who loved Westerns and introduced me to many character actors in the movies including the wonderful and talented Gregory Peck.

    The first movie of course is the tearjerker, “The Yearling” and the 2nd is “The Big Country” with sweeping landscapes and some really convincing cowboys…..
