Fans Bid Peck Farewell

18 June 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Thousands turned up to bid farewell to actor Gregory Peck at a public memorial service in Los Angeles Monday. Family, fans and friends - including Lauren Bacall, Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart, Harry Belafonte, singer Michael Jackson and Anjelica Huston - paid tribute to the Hollywood legend at Our Lady of Angels cathedral. Archbishop Cardinal Roger Mahony told the congregation, "He was an actor of extraordinary depth and breadth and achievement. But his life was not acted. He lived his life authentically. Gregory did not have to act at being an extraordinary human being." The public ceremony took place after a private funeral service. Peck, who was 87, died at his Los Angeles home last week with his wife of 48 years, Veronique, by his side. Actor Brock Peters, who co-starred in Peck's Oscar-winning movie To Kill A Mockingbird, delivered the eulogy at the ceremony - while the actor's children, Anthony, Cecelia and Cary, all gave readings. »

The public memorial service was held at the city's new Cathedral Of Our Lady Of Angels, where Cardinal Roger Mahony oversaw proceedings.

Peck's spokesman Monroe Friedman reveals the actor's remains were laid to rest at a private ceremony earlier yesterday. Friends and colleagues from all areas of Hollywood were expected to attend the memorial. »

Actor Gregory Peck has died of natural causes, aged 87

12 June 2003 | IMDb News

Oscar®-winning actor Gregory Peck, who just recently topped the American Film Institute's list of all-time cinematic heroes for his portrayal of Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, died overnight of undisclosed causes at his home in Los Angeles; he was 87. A tall actor of quiet grace and dignity whose rugged good looks belied a talent for inhabiting numerous characters, Peck planned on becoming a doctor before turning to Broadway in 1942. Two years later, he achieved instant stardom with his role as a priest in The Keys of the Kingdom, which garnered the California-born actor his first Academy Award nomination. A string of critically and commercially successful films followed, including Spellbound, The Yearling, Gentlemen's Agreement and Twelve O'Clock High; the `50s saw Peck take on lead roles in Captain Horatio Hornblower, Roman Holiday and Moby Dick, among others. After four Oscar nominations, Peck finally won the Best Actor honor in 1962 for his stirring portrayal of lawyer Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, the role that best embodied his screen persona. A champion of liberal causes and president of Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences during the late 1960s, Peck was also honored with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian award in 1967. His later films included The Omen, The Boys from Brazil, and Amazing Grace and Chuck. Peck is survived by his wife, Veronique, and four children. --Prepared by IMDb staff »

Lecter, Finch top latest AFI list

4 June 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A crusading small-town lawyer and a jet-setting, cannibalistic gourmand headed the list of the top 50 heroes and top 50 villains revealed by the American Film Institute in a three-hour broadcast Tuesday night on CBS. Atticus Finch, the protagonist of 1962's To Kill a Mockingbird, and Hannibal Lecter, who has appeared in four films, most notably 1991's The Silence of the Lambs, topped the ranks of good guys and baddies in "AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Heroes and Villains." The two actors who played the roles -- Gregory Peck and Anthony Hopkins, respectively -- won Oscars for their performances. "These characters are so strong, people loved the idea" of dividing the AFI's traditional list of 100 into two competing lists of 50, AFI director and CEO Jean Picker Firstenberg said. She admitted that it was difficult defining exactly who qualified as a hero and who had to be consigned to villainy, saying, "The line is sometimes blurred, since nothing is black and white." »

Aging Makes Clooney Consider Full-Time Directing

17 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood hunk George Clooney is starting to consider a full-time career as a movie director - because he doesn't believe he'll stay good looking enough to keep on acting. The Ocean's Eleven star, who stepped behind the camera for his new flick Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, admits that he'll soon have to seriously consider life as a filmmaker when his looks begin to fade. He says, "Eventually, my looks will fall apart and I'll have to give up. You direct to have some control over your career when people say, 'I don't want to see you act anymore.'" The 41-year-old screen star adds, "Paul Newman is acting almost into his 80s, but name another one. Robert Duvall? Fine. But he's Robert Duvall! He did To Kill A Mockingbird. I did Batman & Robin. He did Network. I did Battle Of The Network Stars. There is a difference." »
