Roman Holiday 2011

Roman Holiday 2011: The You want handsome? You want class? You want a gentleman among gentlemen? All hail Gregory Peck, 87 on April 5, 2003, among the best-loved of all Hollywood actors, by his colleagues and by the public, and star of the wonderful (and wise) romantic comedy, Roman Holiday (1953), available in a newly restored 35mm print, in celebration of the film’s 50th birthday.

I talked to Harlan County USA filmmaker Barbara Kopple, who, urged on by the actor’s daughter, Cecilia, made a documentary about Peck several years ago, mixing interviews with scenes of his charming one-man stage show. Kopple found no secret Peck: he was as kind and humane in person as he seems on screen. “For me, he is the Atticus Finch character in To Kill a Mockingbird,” Kopple said. “It’s a film about ethics and social justice, which shows him to be a wonderful father. Peck speaks out on the gun control issue. He does it with finesse and dignity, and people listen.”
