Everybody’s Hero

by Diego Giammarino

I’m from Argentina, and I’m a huge fan of Mr. Gregory Peck. He embodies every character he played, bringing ┬ákindness, courage, integrity and love to each film he was in. One of a kind. Captain Ahab, Atticus Finch, Joe Bradley, Jimmy Ringo, Captain Newman, Horatio Hornblower… what a classic and wonderful actor. My beloved father always remind me of him. What an incredible human being. He visited my country when “OLD GRINGO” was performed. By then I was 22 years old and I remember the impression that this wonderful man gave to all of us. Thank you Mr. Peck… thanks for the inspiration, thanks for the example… thanks for the memories. And thanks for your Atticus… the father we all would like to be.
