A Conversation with Gregory Peck is a fascinating, behind the scenes portrait of a Hollywood legend. Follow one of the most beloved actors in film history as he sets out across America and regales audiences in a one-man show, candidly answering questions and reminiscing about his life and career. Looking back on his extraordinary past, the Academy Award winner discusses his favorite film, To Kill a Mockingbird, reflects on co-stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren, reminisces about his film roles, friendships and his family life, and often invites audience members backstage for a visit. Filled with clips from many of Gregory's films, interviews recorded over the years, never before seen home movies and contemporary footage, the intimate documentary features appearances by filmmaker Martin Scorsese, actress Lauren Bacall and even a rare glimpse of Mary Badham, the Academy Award nominee who brilliantly portrayed Atticus's daughter Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird. Produced by Gregory's daughter Cecilia Peck, along with Linda Saffire and Barbara Kopple, A Conversation with Gregory Peck captures the genuine voice of the actor who has come to represent integrity and conviction, and about whom an esteemed film critic once wrote, "somewhere within that man is the best of us."
