Roman Holiday (1953) – William Wyler

Following my screening of His Girl Friday for the DK Books fantastic, The Movie Book. I have moved on to the What Else to Watch section of the title, and dove into the one film amongst it that I had not yet covered, Roman Holiday. Starring Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck and Eddie Albert, let me…

On the Beach (1959) – Stanley Kramer

The next recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book following my screening of Dr. Strangelove is this film,On the Beach, based on the novel by Nevil Shute. The above the title cast is impressive, Gregory Peck, Anthony Perkins, Ava Gardener and Fred Astaire. I’m just not sure I care for the…

Cape Fear (1962) – J. Lee Thompson

The classic Robert Mitchum/Gregory Peck thriller is the next recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book following my screening of Point Blank. I’m ashamed to admit I had never seen the original before now, I’d seen the remake with Nolte and De Niro, but not this one. So going in, I…

Spellbound (1945) – Alfred Hitchcock

A film starring Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck directed by Alfred Hitchcock can’t be anything but a winner, and is my next stop on the What Else to Watch list from DK Canada’s The Movie Book following their recommendation of the title, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The ever-appealing Bergman plays psychiatrist, Dr. Constance Petersen,…

Traielr Tracks: The Omen (1976) – Richard Donner

Not to be confused with the pointless remake, this classic horror film, played for the most part, straightforward, and almost as a drama, until the terrifying incidents begin to occur, and parents Gregory Peck and Lee Remick start to think there is something much more sinister about their young child, Damien (Harvey Stephens). The film…

The Omen (1976)

Another classic film brought to me by the 101 Horror Movies book. Once again, we are referring to the original of course, not the remake from 2006. All I can remember about that one is that it had Liev Schreiber, and I remembered I didn’t care for it. The original however, still gets the job…
