Geez, is there any question? Mockingbird, all the way. Not only Peck's best movie, one of the best movies, period.

That poor boy. My heart breaks for him. To Kill a Mockingbird jokes at him for the rest of his life, good job.

I choose "OTHER" because "The Big Country" is my favorite Western.

Boy, what a year he had in 1962, hunh?

I voted Cape Fear because of Mitchum and the genre in general, but I would agree that playing Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird is his defining role.

To Kill a Mockingbird

The Gunfighter would be my second pick, one of the best westerns ever that really needs to be on DVD.

Tough call since I've enjoyed so many of his films. Today my vote goes to The Guns of Navarone. Ask me tomorrow and I'd likely say "The Big Country" as mentioned earlier. Most of his Westerns, Moby Dick, Cape Fear, Mockingbird, Pork Chop Hill, Mirage, Man in the Gray Flannel Suit, and Horatio Hornblower all score well in my book.

It has to be Mockingbird.

Still, I do want to put in a plug for his excellent performance in the misunderstood, underseen and underrated Other People's Money.

Tequilla ( )Mockingbird, no doubt is his best. IMHO, Mirage comes in second.

I don't think that you are going to find too many arguing against TKAM . . .
