Gregory Peck talks!

A quick heads up on something airing during TCM's day of Gregory Peck movies: A Conversation with Gregory Peck, airing at midnight ET tonight (that's 11:00 PM tonight in the Central Time Zone and 9:00 PM out in California).

This 1999 movie is a behind the scenes look at Peck who, as an elderly man, is now making the rounds of speaking engagements, answering questions about his life and career from his devoted fans. If this were just that, a movie along the lines of one of Robert Osborne's Private Screenings interviews, it would be a nice document to have. But there's more to it. We also get a nice look at his family life including his wife of many years, VĂ©ronique (they met in Paris when he was on his way to make Roman Holiday), and his pregnant daughter. It's a nice, warm look at a fine actor. It's apparently a bonus feature on one of the DVD editions of To Kill a Mockingbird, but IMDb don't give a link to Amazon to buy it.
