A Legend

by Danny Devito

Well, it was just the greatest thrill of my life to work with Gregory Peck, a man who I admired so much, and loved him in all the pictures I ever saw him in. And when Norman Jewison said he was going to play this part opposite me in “Other People’s Money,” I was just, you know, overwhelmed, blown away, flabbergasted…going to work with a legend. I was very, very nervous, and we had several really wonderful scenes together, and when I got to meet him, he was just the warmest, kindest, gentlest, just the most wonderful guy. You felt like he’d just embraced you and made you feel comfortable, and he was just the sweetest man.
