Like many of you I'm sure, I was saddened to hear of Gregory Peck's passing today. I couldn't help but go back to one of my favorite roles of his in the film "Other People's Money" (which starred Danny Devito.) Peck's heartfelt speech near the end of the film to his company's stockholders to reject the takeover bid of Devito's corporate swine really hit home to most of us in the middle class. A man who built his company from nothing into a giant, only to see it go through hard financial times was difficult to watch but his overriding hope of a better tomorrow, for both himself and the small town whose livelihoods depend on the factory staying open, certainly put a smile on my face. It's a shame this film was overlooked during it's original theatrical run, but DVD can bring it to a new audience. For those of you who think Michael Douglas is the only actor who can expertly pull off rich/greedy/powerful without a sweat, I suggest you watch Devito in this flick. Devito's rebuttal to Peck's near the end of the film rivals that of Douglas' in "Wall Street." I certainly hope Warner Brothers will look into releasing "Other People's Money" on DVD sometime soon. Anybody else with me?
