I read this one year ago and still can remember large sections of it. There are two reasons for this: First, Gary Fishgall is one of the four best biographers around and he has experience and talent to back it up; the second reason is that Gregory Peck was one of the most articulate and noble men to ever grace the screen. I was enthralled by his level of dignity and honesty about himself. he is one of my top five favorite actors of all-time. BTW, James Stewart, John Wayne, Charlton Heston and Pa ...more

Gregory Peck was an incredible man. He was not flashy or egomaniacal like so many other actors. His calm supportive presence during pictures was lauded by nearly all who worked with him. He tried to do what he believed was right nearly always. His bio was not always glowing with praise, but he does come off as noble as he appears on screen.

I love Gregory Peck. Remember watching his movies as a child, and admiring how handsome he was and a great actor. I have the DVD of his Conversations with Gregory Peck, and there you see him as the person, with his loving family, and realize what a true Gentleman looks like.
The book is great. I recommend it.

An easy read about a talented and charitable actor who conducted himself with dignity and integrity - Hollywood (and the rest of the world) could benefit from more people like him.

Good solid bio with a focus on the career rather than the man. However it lacked that spark which can make biographies great.

It was okay, it mainly focused on Peck's career. I'd only recommend it if you're a big Peck fan.
