In college, Gregory Peck majored in English with an "interest" in theater. And for this southern California boy, success in his field of interest came quickly. With a majority of his Oscar nominations coming in the first five films he made, his career seemed made. Then, Harper Lee wrote a book. It was a story Peck wanted to take on immediately and until the day he died he professed Atticus Finch was his favorite role. Elmer Bernstein provided a breathtaking score for the tale of courage and character in a small southern town. To Kill a Mockingbird on Flicks in Five.
