Can GPG decrypt files encrypted by PGP?

I am using GPG to encrypt / decrypt files.  Can someone tell me whether this will also work if someone sends me a file that was encrypted using PGP?

If someone could also send me a sample file encrypted by PGP (including the passphrase), that would be great in helping me prove the concept.

Do you happen to know where I can get my hands on a sample file encrypted by PGP for testing this theory?  You know how it is - it's one thing to read a document which says you can do it, but it's quite another to actually do it.
You can try this download of PGP freeware to test it for yourself. 30 days to test it out. So you encrypt using your keys with PGP, and decrypt with GPG
Please read all instructions before trying out the PGP trial version.
