Peck pic pilfered frum Dr. Macro’s High Quality Movie Scans:
Peck’s tussle with “Old Thunder” in The Big Country wasn’t his first altercation with an ornery steed. Observe the clip below from Duel in the Sun.
Call me wrong, but it appears Peck is doing his own stunt-work ?
I love the way Peck swings into the corral – Lancaster style.
The cast of Duel in the Sun is mindboggling: Gregory Peck, Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, Lionel Barrymore, Herbert Marshall, Lillian Gish, Walter Huston, Charles Bickford, Harry Carey, Butterfly McQueen, Otto Kruger, Sidney Blackmer ... My God!
