Personal Quote:

[on Robert Mitchum] I had given him the role and had paid him a terrific amount of money. It was obvious he had the better role. I thought he would understand that, but he apparently thought he acted me off the screen. I didn't think highly of him for that. See more »

Trivia:

Peck's father encouraged him to take up medicine but his grades weren't good enough to get him into medical school. He later took a public speaking course at San Diego State, which was his introduction to acting. See more »
