Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch

I finally finished the painting I mentioned in the post below. From one of my favorite book/movie adaptations "To Kill A Mockingbird" Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. There was originally pinstripes on his seer sucker suit but I was happy with the way the suit came out here so I left it...plus I was anxious to start my next painting. Acrylic on canvas 16"x20"

  1. I can see the Peck for sure, so don't get me wrong, but I'm also getting Jeff Goldblum, eh? Is that intentional?

  2. Hmm. Jeff Goldblum IS Gregory Peck in "To Kill a Mockingbird"! No...it wasn't intentional....but I can see it.

  4. No -- I just checked.

    He'd do a good one for sure, I suspect. Love that guy!

  5. Oops. That was my attempt at MST3K humor. As far as I know Mr. Goldblum has not played Atticus Finch. But...yeah he would do good. My favorite role of his would be from Jurassic Park.

  10. Am watching To Kill A Mockingbird right now on AMC and was thinking how much Jeff Goldblum looks like Atticus Finch! I bet he could pull off a remake of this.... and keep it real, and to the times, instead of trying to make it fit today's society :)
