Actor Jack Lemmon has been honored with the Ralph Bunche Peace Award. Lemmon received the award, named for the American Nobel Peace Prize winner, Friday from Mayor Tom Bradley and actress Jean Stapleton, who is the honorary chairwoman for United Nations Day. "I've been able to find material that would entertain but would also move beyond entertainment," Lemmon said. "Whatever the point of view, it was not as important to have the audience agree with it but to move it to stop and think." Bunche, who won the Nobel Prize for his work in establishing a 1948 peace accord between Egypt and Israel, also served as undersecretary general of the United Nations.
