Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Dignity and Old Age
5 August 2006 | by jimselman-1See all my reviews

This film not only depicts the life and work of a great actor, but gives us insight into a great human being and the possibility of growing older with power and grace and generosity. What if we could all command a stage for an hour or so to share our experience and our lives with those who love and admire us, and leave them feeling better about themselves because we were here. His roles were about ordinary people with extraordinary commitments and he was clearly a man that 'walked his talk' in every scene of this marvelous documentary. Most moving was his obvious love and respect for everyone in his family and his friends and his ability to balance a serious concern for serious issues while maintaining a sense of grace and humor and humility that could be a noble standard for us all.
