Gregory Peck
Birth: Apr. 5, 1916

San Diego County
California, USA
Death: Jun. 12, 2003
Los Angeles
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actor. He was a lanky handsome movie star whose long career included such classics as "Roman Holiday," "Spellbound," and his Academy Award winner "To Kill a Mockingbird." His craggy good looks, grace and measured speech contributed to his screen image as the decent, courageous man of action. He was never less than a star and was nominated five times for the Oscar. Offscreen as well as on he conveyed a quiet dignity. He served as president of the Motion Picture Academy and was active in the Motion Picture and Television Fund, American Cancer Society, National Endowment for the Arts and numerous other causes. When he accepted the Academy's Jean Hersholt humanitarian award in 1968 he said he was embarrassed to be classified as a humanitarian. In roles too numerous to mention, it was his performance as Atticus Finch in "To Kill a Mockingbird" that the American Film Institute listed as the number one hero figure in 100 years of motion pictures. He died peacefully in his sleep with his wife at his side. (bio by: Ron Moody)
