Having started his career as an usher at the Radio City Music Hall in New York, Peck's first acting stints were on Broadway, before he moved on to the silver screen. His first Academy Award nomination came within a year of his debut with "Keys to the Kingdom" and he was nominated again just three years later for "Gentleman's Agreement." Peck finally won an Academy Award for his unforgettable portrayal of Atticus Finch in "To Kill a Mockingbird" (1962).
