Gregory Peck made his final appearance in his popular, touring reminiscence show, A Conversation With Gregory Peck, Feb. 20 at the Elsinore Theater in Salem, OR.
The famed film actor, who began his career on stage regionally at venues such as the Barter Theatre in Virginia and on tours and on Broadway, has been traveling North America for the past five years, sharing film clips, anecdotes and taking questions from the audience about such pictures as "Moby Dick," "Roman Holiday" and "To Kill a Mockingbird."
The 83-year-old actor reportedly moved slowly and walked with a cane during his last show.
"This is the end of my first farewell tour," Peck reportedly joked, adding that he was done with major films roles but was free for "a smashing cameo."
Peck acted at Virginia's Barter in 1940, appearing in five plays including Family Portrait and On Earth as It Is. Two years later, he made his Broadway debut in Morning Star. His first Hollywood picture was 1944's "Days of Glory." Peck has 70 performances of his Conversation show under his belt.
