    This is one of the hardest choices in the history of this category. Two career best performances from two of the all time best actors. I think Peck probably won very easily at the time, because O’Toole was so unknown at the time, but looking back, I would basically want a tie.

    Peck, though Lemmon and O’Toole are in prime form too. Mastroianni and Lancaster are solid too, just not quite in the same league.

    Peck, but Lemmon and O’Toole are great as well.

    It’s the most iconic role of Gregory Peck even though my absolute favorite performance of his is the seldom discusses Twelve O’Clock High, for which he easily deserved the Oscar. Peter O’Toole is arguably even more iconic – for that reason, I’d probably vote for him. At the time, however, Peck seemed like an obvious choice given both his overdue status and the impact of his work. 🙂

    But then there’s Jack Lemmon, giving without question the performance of his career – it’s the most devastating and personal performance one can imagine. Just chilling, so in the end, no one can beat him in my mind. And, if I remember correctly, even Peck admitted that Lemmon was the most deserving candidate for the big prize.

    The two other guys are wonderul additions to this truly iconic line-up. Mastroianni being hilarious and diabolical and Lancaster displaying his amazing skills once again. Really amazing.

    This is not a competition: Lemmon is heartbreaking. Peck does a career best turn too.

    Jack Lemmon by far. His best work

    I watched To Kill a Mockingbird last night in honor of Gregory Peck’s 100th birthday.

    His performance as Atticus Finch is simply masterful and beautifully understated.

    In an interview shown on TCM after the film, Peck shared an anecdote from the first day of filming. It was the scene was Scout, Jem and Dill meet Atticus on his way home from work and walk past Mrs. DuBose on her porch. Author Harper Lee was present on set. Peck noted that he saw a tear slide down Lee’s cheek during the scene.

    After the camera stopped rolling, Peck approached her. He asked about the emotion. She replied that he had a little pot belly just like her father. Peck said he straightened up and replied that was simply good acting.

    I could easily vote for anyone but Lancaster.  I’ll go with O’Toole.
