Disc 2 is packed with two exceptional feature-length documentaries. Coproduced by Cecilia Peck and directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple, A Conversation with Gregory Peck is a home movie in the best sense of the word: An intimate portrait of the actor in his later years, as he tours the U.S. with his one-man stage show of reminiscent storytelling, it also features visits to Ireland (where Martin Scorsese also appears at a benefit for the Irish film industry) and Paris (where French President Jacques Chirac expresses his affection for Peck's French-born wife, Veronique, at a posh state dinner). The film ends with birth of Peck's grandson Harper (named after To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee), and the emotional connection between "Atticus" and happy grandpa Peck is a moment that could melt anyone's heart. And while the literary conceits of Fearful Symmetry are a bit too precious for a making-of documentary, it's clearly a labor of love for writer-director Charles Kiselyak, originally produced for the previous Mockingbird DVD, released in 1998. In addition to providing a thorough production history and interviews with all the major cast and crew, the 90-minute documentary weaves an emotional connection between the film's enduring greatness and the real-life residents of Monroeville, Alabama, who serves as the inspiration for Lee's classic novel. The Legacy Series DVD also includes 11 postcard-sized reproductions of Mockingbird movie posters, nicely packaged in a sleeve-pocket envelope. --Jeff Shannon

It was great. I purchased the book first read it and then I watched the movie.
I highly recommend it.
Still poignant and powerful all these decades later. And I wish I didn't have to say how painfully relevant the story and its theme still are, but the truth is just the truth. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Elaine S. Apthorp
