  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this post! Gregory Peck is one of my favourite actors…try watch “Yellow Sky”. It is such a lovely western also starring Anne Baxter. He is the best bad boy in Duel in the Sun (it is one of those horrible but kind of good movies).

  2. great pics Virginie!! How could they not be with these great actors. For Spencer Tracy may favorite performance was ‘Inherit the wind”, also one of my top 10 films. I agree with ” Guess who’s coming to dinner?”. His last speech is a classic!!
