    1. His original name was Eldred Gregory Peck, but he dropped the Eldred after graduating from university.

    2. He was exempted from military service in the Second World War because of a back injury sustained during his actor training.

    3. His earliest movie memory was being scared by Phantom Of The Opera when he was aged nine.

    4. In the 1968 film The Big Country, Gregory Peck appears with his three sons Jonathan Peck, Carey Paul Peck and Stephen Peck.

    5. In 1969, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honour in the US.

    6. His racehorse Different Class finished third in the 1968 Grand National.

    7. In 2003 his Oscar-winning portrayal of Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird (1962) was voted the “Greatest Film Hero of the Past 100 years”.

    8. In 1983, he was admitted to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.

    9. His favourite drink was Guinness which he had every day, even having a tap installed in his home.

    10. He was offered the role of Grandpa Joe in the 2005 film of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory but died before he could accept it.

    If I'd known about his horse in the Grand National, I'd have backed it for sure !

    I can't believe there are 3 pages about Gregory Peck and a fake leg. I read all the posts. This is when I'm reminded of how great it is to no longer have to go to work. :p
