In 1999, Gregory Peck (1916-2003) visits the Barter Theatre, Abingdon, VA, where he had acted in 1940 and where this evening he tells stories and answers questions about his career. Interspersed are clips from Peck's films and from interviews recorded over the years and vérité contemporary footage of visiting with his daughter Cecilia before and after the birth of her son, receiving the National Medal of Arts, chatting with Lauren Bacall and with Martin Scorsese, and dining with Jacques Chirac, always with his wife of forty-four years, Veronique Passani, beside him. Throughout, Peck is informal, candid, and wry. Written by <>

Great Look at Peck

Conversation with Gregory Peck, A (1999)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Very good documentary by Barbara Kopple (Wild Man Blues) that follows legend Gregory Peck on a tour where he answers questions from audience members. A lot of good questions are asked and answered by the star but the key point to this documentary is all the time it shows between Peck and his family. Many wonderful stories are told and you really get a sense that Peck was as remarkable in real life as he was on the screen. Martin Scorsese and Lauren Bacall are featured in small cameos as well. This is certainly a must see for any Peck fan.
