Gregory Peck (Legends of Hollywood)
The 17th stamp in the Legends of Hollywood series honors Gregory Peck (1916–2003), one of America's most respected actors. Peck's own favorite role, and the one for which he is most remembered, is Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird (1962).
The stamp portrait is a still photograph from the film, which tells the story of Atticus's defense of a black man falsely accused of raping a white woman. Peck's performance earned him an Oscar, and the character was named the greatest hero in motion picture history by the American Film Institute. The selvage image shows Peck with his Academy Award.
The Gregory Peck stamp is being issued as a Forever® stamp. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate.
