Want to know the best Gregory Peck movies? How about the worst Gregory Peck movies? Curious about Gregory Peck’s box office grosses or which Gregory Peck movie picked up the most Oscar® nominations? Need to know which Gregory Peck movie got the best reviews from critics and audiences? Well you have come to the right place….because we have all of that information.
A couple of years ago, I decided to watch all the movies that had won Academy Awards® for the major categories. As I worked my way through the Oscar® winners from the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s, I started to notice that many of these movies starred Gregory Peck. Movies like Roman Holiday (Audrey Hepburn Best Actress), Twelve O’Clock High (Dean Jagger Best Supporting Actor), The Big Country (Burl Ives Best Supporting Actor), A Gentleman’s Agreement (Best Picture of the Year and Elia Kazan Best Director), and of course To Kill A Mockingbird (Gregory Peck Best Actor). He also was the star in the following Academy Award® Best Picture nominated movies: 1945 Spellbound, 1946 The Yearling, 1949 Twelve O’Clock High, 1953 Roman Holiday, 1961 The Guns of Navarone , and two movies in 1962 How the West Was Won and To Kill A Mockingbird. After seeing all of this great movies I came to the conclusion that Gregory Peck is one of the most under appreciated actors.
His IMDb page shows 58 acting credits from 1944-1998. This page will rank 53 Gregory Peck movies from Best to Worst in six different sortable columns of information. Television shows, shorts, cameos and movies that were not released in theaters were not included in the rankings.
Drivel part of the page: This page was the first of over 320 pages that will received an update. What is new you ask? Three big things….first of all a new way to calculate adjusted box office grosses has been implemented. Secondly for the first time in five years we tweeked our movie ranking formula. Box office results now represent a smaller percentage of the equation…while critic reviews and audience voting has been given a bigger percentage of the equation. The award section has remained the same. The third update revolves the co-star column in the table below….if the co-star has a link….that link will take you to that star’s Ultimate Movie Ranking (UMR) page.
