From the 1940s to the '60s, Gregory Peck was one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. Spellbound. Roman Holiday. Twelve O'Clock High. Cape Fear. And of course, his role as Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird. Studded with legendary directors and iconic titles, Peck's filmography has cemented his place in film history. In the twilight of his life, still filled with energy and passion for his craft, he embarks on a cross-US speaking tour. Kopple follows him, as part of PBS's American Masters series, documenting his illuminating on-stage conversations about his storied career and life, and his encounters with the likes of the Clintons and Martin Scorsese. But Kopple also shoots more candid moments backstage, including ones with Peck's wife, that give a sense of the man behind the legend. Kiva Reardon
