Strong performances, but recounting incidents does not substitute adequately for seeing them.

Description

When journalist Phil Green (Gregory Peck) moves to New York City, he takes on a high-profile magazine assignment about anti-Semitism. In order to truly view things from an empathetic perspective, he pretends to be a Jew and begins to experience many forms of bigotry, both firsthand and through a Jewish friend, Dave Goldman (John Garfield). Phil soon falls in love with beautiful Kathy Lacy (Dorothy McGuire), but their relationship is complicated by his unusual endeavor.

Critic reviews

“Gentleman's A­greement is the sort of film that contains the usual drama for a Zanuck movie but the subject matter is what makes the film so groundbreaking.”

  • Solzy at the Movies

“Gentleman's A­greement still comes across as a smart, incisive, and engrossing drama, and although times have changed since 1947, the subject it so boldly tackles remains timely and relevant to this day.”

  • Turner Classic Movies Online

“Powerful film still makes one of the most insightful attacks on racism ever shot.”
