Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book and movie character. He is a model of manhood to me. (And he was created by a woman.)
Atticus was powerfully portrayed by Gregory Peck, who said it was his favorite role of his career.
I just read that Brock Peters read Gregory Peck’s eulogy. Mr.Peters is the actor who played the man Atticus defended in To Kill a Mockingbird.
What fitting tribute to a great man.
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
Great way to give tribute to a fine actor and book character, too. Gregory Peck seemed like the kind and respectable man he portrayed on-screen. 🙂
I would be saddened to learn if Peck wasn’t a good man. I believe he was an excellent actor.
I agree, Russ!
I loved Peck in To Kill a Mocking Bird. This eulogy is fitting. Wow. ::-)
I agree, Tess. I’d love see a clip of the eulogy or read what was said.
Never read the book, never seen the movie, just saying
So you’re the one. ;-D!
a perfect tribute
