  2. Charles, Gregory Peck apparently liked to be photographed with books and, I guess, he read them too.

  3. Mel, I was looking up something when I came across one of Peck's pictures and then I looked for more. You might get TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD on VCD/DVD. TCM might show it too.

  4. I think most people used to be readers. Or at least reading was held in higher esteem than now.

  5. Patti, you're right. I have come across pictures of quite a few Hollywood greats reading books, most recently Orson Welles.

  7. Mel, I'm afraid not. I have only heard of Mercury Theatre on the Air except I didn't know it was Welles' company. I'll check it out. Thanks...
