Fans Bid Peck Farewell

Thousands turned up to bid farewell to actor GREGORY PECK at a public memorial service in Los Angeles yesterday (16JUN03).

Family, fans and friends - including LAUREN BACALL, HARRISON FORD, CALISTA FLOCKHART, HARRY BELAFONTE, singer MICHAEL JACKSON and ANJELICA HUSTON - paid tribute to the Hollywood legend at Our Lady of Angels cathedral.

Archbishop Cardinal ROGER MAHONY told the congregation, "He was an actor of extraordinary depth and breadth and achievement. But his life was not acted. He lived his life authentically. Gregory did not have to act at being an extraordinary human being."

The public ceremony took place after a private funeral service. Peck, who was 87, died at his Los Angeles home last week (ends13JUN03) with his wife of 48 years, Veronique, by his side.

Actor BROCK PETERS, who co-starred in Peck's OSCAR-winning movie TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, delivered the eulogy at the ceremony - while the actor's children, ANTHONY, CECELIA and CARY, all gave readings.
