St. Paul, Minn. — In college, Gregory Peck majored in English with an "interest" in theater. And for this southern California boy, success in his field of interest came quickly. With a majority of his Oscar nominations coming in the first five films he made, his career seemed made. Then, Harper Lee wrote a book.
