Happy Birthday Eldred Gregory Peck!                                                                                        

April 5th 1916 - June 12th 2003

"In art there is compassion, in compassion there is humanity, with humanity there is generosity and love. Gregory Peck gave us these attributes in full measure."

- Brock Peters

"He was no saint, but he was a man of extraordinary gifts. Of course, he was tall, dark and handsome, but actually more than that - he was dazzling."

- Lauren Bacall

His expressiveness in the bottom right square is lost to any person who’s had Botox.
