It's definitely the most [[PopCultureOsmosis iconic]] ([[BriefAccentImitation and imitated]]) Cockney slang term, next to "apples and pears" [[note]]"stairs", by the way[[/note]].

A tall, dark, clean-cut, all-American with a stirring voice and a sincere squint, he mostly made a career of playing [[IncorruptiblePurePureness incorruptible pillars of virtue and wisdom.]] Best known for his Oscar-winning turn as Atticus Finch in ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' (voted by the American Film Institute as the greatest hero in the history of American film, a week before Peck died), he played similarly admirable characters in films such as ''Literature/TheYearling'', ''Film/GentlemansAgreement'', ''Film/TwelveOClockHigh'', and ''Film/TheBigCountry''.
