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...

Chronological portrait of Gregory Peck's movie carreer. Very complimentary, general biography overview.
20 January 2019 | by imseegSee all my reviews

Gregory Peck's charisma stands strong to this very day. I dont know of many other actors from that era with such an incredible powerful charisma. Robert Mitchum comes to mind and there sure are other great Hollywood actors with lots of charisma, but what makes Gregory Peck unique is his charisma of sensitivity and righteousness. One instantly senses that this man is honest and gentle, while he simultanesouly oozes authority. His deep bronzen voice adds to this authoritarian father figure, which swept away the female audience and invoked respect from male viewers.

This documentary is very complimentary, chronically giving a general overview of this actor's carreer up untill "Old Gringo". His chronilogically movie carreer is intermingled with a few family snapshots how he grew up as a kid and how he was as a family man, later in life.

This 1 hour documentary is a good way to quickly cover decades of movies made by Gregory Peck, however it is done with such a speed that I wished some classics could have gotten a bit more time to be reviewed more thoroughly.
