Storyline

HIS OWN MAN One of Hollywood's most enduring and popular stars draws on his memories to tell the amusing and touching story of how it was when the studios ruled supreme, and how a shy and inarticulate boy from a broken family could rise to super stardom to become one of the most handsome, attractive and respected of movie leading men. His early career proved his talent; his later years showed that with the talent came a wise and humane individual. Unfashionably modest in these days of hard-hitting self-aggrandizement, Peck takes us with him on this long and fascinating journey from early theater roles, through his first film parts up to today. This entertainment special uses clips from Peck's most important movies including The Yearling, To Kill a Mockingbird, Spellbound, Moby Dick, Roman Holiday, Duel in the Sun, The Guns of Navarone, MacArthur, Captain Hornblower, The Boys From Brazil - and interviews with Jane Fonda, Audrey Hepburn, Liza Minnelli, Anthony Quinn, Jack Lemmon, Lauren...

Great Look at the Career of Peck
28 January 2013 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Gregory Peck: His Own Man (1988)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Very good documentary from Gene Feldman goes over the career of Gregory Peck. Through newsreels and film clips we see some highlights of his career as well as get to know a little about his person life. Jane Fonda, Lauren Bacall, Audrey Hepburn, Jack Lemmon, Anthony Quinn and Liza Minnelli are among the people interviewed who share their stories on Peck the actor and the man. Seeing so many famous names talk about Peck is certainly something special but even better is that we get the man himself talking about his career. It was a lot of fun getting to hear from Peck as he talks about what he looks for in a role, what he tries to do in a role and of course he talks about some of his bigger films like TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and DUEL IN THE SUN. Peck also goes into details about his childhood, how he got into acting and of course his children, including the son who killed himself. I can't imagine any fan of the actor not be entertained by this thing. At just a hour one wishes that it had gone on much longer but I think what's here is pretty special and especially considering so many of the people are no longer with us.
