Since it’s February and love is in the air, let’s talk crushes. And by crushes I mean the gentlemen in film that are the cause of that worn down rewind button on your remote. I’m going to do a set of crushes – one post a week throughout the month. And I’m going to begin with The Classic: Gregory Peck.
A serious man who portrayed serious characters, Gregory Peck still managed to make my heart beat a little faster. To blame? Well, you can start with that voice. And then you can move on to those dark eyes.
In a comment on my ‘reading the classics‘ post, Danielle made my day by saying Gregory Peck = yum! I couldn’t agree more. And while others swoon over Cary Grant, I say well that’s fine, more Gregory for me.
I went on to ask Danielle if she’d seen one of his earlier films, The Keys of the Kingdom, because he was young and beautiful, and he played a character that was sweetly determined and devoted to his faith and the people in his care. For me, Peck is one of the unforgettables. Whether playing a lawyer, a man in a gray flannel suit, or an amnesiac, Peck gets me every time.
My next Crushes post will be on The Obvious (bet you can guess who’ll make an appearance on that list. Actually, I bet you can name two.) If you have any classic crushes, name drop in the comments!
