Roman Holiday on the big screen

by Jenifer Jagler

I was born in 1979 and grew up in awe of Peck’s performance in To Kill A Mockingbird, which led me to discover his other fantastic roles. Having been a fan of his all my life, I often wished I had the chance to see him on the big screen. This past holiday season my wish came true when a local theater showed Roman Holiday. It was nothing short of magical! I think I watched the entire film with a huge grin on my face. Even though I had seen the movie before it felt like the first time. They just don’t make movie stars the way they used to! Cheers and thank you to Gregory Peck!
