Matinee Men: Gregory Peck

Welcome to On the Marquee's first installment of Matinee Men, aka Siren Centerfold's male counterpart! Today, I bring you the tall, dark and handsome Gregory Peck. In some of his most famous films, he played the upstanding gentlemen to a tee--the guy who's trying to do the right thing. And it seemed art imitated life. In 1969, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. Watch Roman Holiday, Gentleman's Agreement or To Kill a Mockingbird (for which he won the Best Actor Oscar), and you'll see Peck's irresistible appeal. For starters, though, you can just stare at these pictures below.

And he reads too! What a guy...

How debonair!

Ah, the intense look.

Whisk me away to Rome, please!
