Gregory Peck has made so many excellent films that its hard to name a favorite.I2 o'clock High,Gentlemens Agreement, Man in the Grey Flannel Suit, and the list goes on.One film that gets little mention these days is Keys to the Kingdom  with a young Roddy McDowell and Edmund Gwenn. A bio pic of sorts has Peck as priest living out his long career.Just another milestone  in Pecks memorable career.

the first movie i ever saw with Gregory Peck was the spectacular THE GUNS OF NAVARONE, a world war II adventure classic from 1961, and one of my favorites. next to Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn, John Wayne, and Jimmy Stewart, Gary Cooper, Burt Lancaster, and Kirk Douglas, Gregory Peck remains to this day one of cinema's greatest legends. he personified the strong, determined, stiff upper lipped but lighthearted american hero, much like many did. but with Peck there will never be a substitute, with his distinctive deep voice, acting style, and moral interpretations (THE BRAVADOS being a perfect example of that, in which his character gains redemption for revenge against the lowlifes that murdered his wife). sure, most just think of him as Atticus Finch, but i imagine him as being more than that, being the multi-faceted actor he was.

What surprised me about Virginia Mayo when I met her is that she was so short. Nice lady.

I like intelligently made adventure films, and a favorite in my library I keep going back to is "Capatain Horatio Hornblower."
Well produced, excitingly photographed and edited, and a stong action storyline that keeps things moving all the way through to a happy ending. (I particularly like [believable]happy endings ever since hollywood began its excessive worship of the low and dark side of human nature).
Anyway, Peck is perfect as the intrepid Captain suddenly forced to recapture a ship with twice the guns of his - which he had given away to whom he thought at the time was an English ally. Then there's Virginia Mayo, who puts dignity in a role that could have easily been made less by a lesser actress. It doesn't hurt either that at this moment in her career her looks are one half-blink short of a goddess.
Highly recommended to those ready to innocently relish a rousing 18th century adventure. Aaaarrhh!!

Atticus! Atticus! Atticus!

I agree, Gregory Peck was made to play good guys! It was a little chocking to see him hitting Deborah Kerr in Beloved Infidel. Ok, ok, he was drunk, but… Deborah is such a lady!
To Kill a Mockingbird is superb!

To Kill a Mockingbird is an all tiem favorite movie of mine.
Comment by Leanne on January 27, 2009 at 3:07pm
I would LOVE to visit Italy and do just that.

To Kill a Mockingbird is another amazing film of his, and another of my favourites too. When I rented the DVD, the first time I watched it, I was so taken by it that I went straight ahead and ordered the DVD to have for myself. Everyone should see this film!

Mine too! It's one of my favourite movies ever, actually.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
