April 5 is an important date on our calendar as three major movie stars were born on this day: Bette Davis, Gregory Peck and Spencer Tracy (and also Melvyn Douglas, Frank Gorshin and Walter Huston). To pay a tribute to them, I’ve decided to present you 3 little top 5 of 1- my favourite Bette Davis’ films, 2- my favourite Gregory Peck’s films and 3- my favourite Spencer Tracy’s films. These actors are all personal favourites and it’s been a long time since I haven’t post a traditional top list on this blog!
Remember that these are my personal choices, so thanks in advance for respecting them!
