Gregory Peck (2)

Eldred Gregory Peck (April 5, 1916 – June 12, 2003) was an American actor.
One of the world's most popular film stars from the 1940s to the 1960s, Peck continued to play major film roles until the late 1970s.
President Lyndon Johnson honoured Peck with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1969 for his lifetime humanitarian efforts. Gentleman'sAgreement established his power in the "social conscience" genre in a film that took on the deep-seated but subtle antisemitism of mid-century corporate America.
Behold a Pale Horse told the story of Anarchist guerilla Sabaté  A film that wasn't much appreciated by Franco and his cronies in the US. 


  1. Hey, a family connection! It was a long-held 'myth' in my maternal family (called 'Peck') that Gregory Peck was a relation. Eventually, my grandmother established that it was true—her uncle, I think, moved to the US, married and one of his children was indeed Gregory Peck.

    Nice to see the beret circle squared, as it were.


    1. Hi Jolyon,
      You've surprised me before, but this is quite amazing!
      Good connections altogether.
