Gregory Peck just died!


Damnit. Rule of thirds, we just lost David Brinkly, and now Gregory Peck…who’s next?

Man, why are all the good ones going away?

I just heard.



Really? Wow. What a true legend.

Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird and his reporter in Roman Holliday are two of my favorite characters ever…

Thanks for good time, Mr. Peck.

I never know what to say to these kinds of news. Its so sad to lose such a great person. He has given so much of his talent and life for us to enjoy. so very sad.

Damn, I really liked him; and he was still pretty hot, even at his age.

Guinastasia will be devastated.

Sorry, Guin.

A great actor and a decent human being who will be missed.

He was quite a talent.

I will always think of “Scout? Scout?” when he is mentioned.

His sensative yet powerful portrayal of different protaganists through the ages has left a lasting mark in filmdom. A standard to reach for.

So long, old friend… :frowning:

Last time this happened, I think the third one was “the guy who played guitar for Foghat.” Maybe this time it will be somebody like “Carrot Top”.

Eve’s falling down on the job, letting herself get scooped like this.

Yep, it’s sad that Gregory Peck is dead, but he lived to be very old, he was loved and prosperous, and his work will live on beyond him for generations to come.

Bye, Atticus.


HEY thats a great idea. Lets all post a favorite character that Gregory Peck played in honor of his lifes achievments.

I loved him as Douglas MacArthur. His performance was brilliant and so moving. He made a great man come back to life for us in the screen.

Great movies I enjoyed because of him:

The Omen
To Kill a Mockingbird
Guns of Navarone
The Horatio Hornblower story

Many Thanks, Mr Peck.

Hey! I was out getting lunch, okay? I did call “David Brinkley” a whole day before he died, y’know . . .

Oh, that’s sad. I don’t know what to say to this kind of thing, either, and I’m another one who always thinks of “Scout?” when his name is mentioned.

So long, Atticus.

Damn. I haven’t seen Mockingbird yet, although I loved the book, but he was great in The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit.

Gregory Peck is one of my all-time favorite actors. I saw him speak a few years ago, and his voice was still rich and deep.

Of course, his portrayal of Atticus Finch is a classic, but he was very good playing Ambrose Bierce in Gringo Viejo, too.

Goodbye, Greg. And thanks for all the wonderful movies!

Oh wow. This is so weird. I was just watching TKAM this morning, thinking the whole time about Atticus Finch, #1 movie hero, and how sad it would be when Gregory Peck was gone.

I didn’t think it would be TODAY . . . :frowning:

Goodbye, Atticus. You done good.

David Brinkley this morning, Gregory Peck this afternoon. I think I’ll cut myself off from all outside contact tonight.

Once there were giants who walked among us. . .

A really wonderful talent is missing now from this earth.

RIP, Mr. Peck. There’s one more star in Heaven today. :frowning:

I juuuuuuust re-read “To Kill A Mockingbird” the other day and was thinking about who could possibly recapture the magic of Gregory Peck’s performance if they ever got it in their heads to remake the movie.

No one, I concluded. Peck’s performance in that movie was as inimitable as he.

He’ll be missed.

Phil Green, in Getleman’s Agreement (Best Picture of 1947).

He was also a lifelong Democrat who was very supportive of progressive causes.
