“Gentleman’s Agreement”: A very nice movie from 1947

Thank God for the retro movie channels.   It has connected people like me with the movies made before I was born or too young to watch.    

Let’s add “Gentleman’s Agreement” to that list of movies.   It was released in 1947.   The plot goes like this:  

A reporter pretends to be Jewish in order to cover a story on anti-Semitism, and personally discovers the true depths of bigotry and hatred.

The  cast was Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire and John Garfield.     Peck played the journalist and McGuire the pre-school teacher.     

A good movie and well reviewed by the critics:    

The shabby cruelties of anti-Semitism which were sharply and effectively revealed within the restriated observation of Laura Z. Hobson’s “Gentleman’s Agreement” have now been exposed with equal candor and even greater dramatic forcefulness in the motion-picture version of the novel which came to the Mayfair yesterday.   In fact, every point about prejudice which Miss Hobson had to make in her book has been made with superior illustration and more graphic demonstration in the film, so that the sweep of her moral indignation is not only widened but intensified thereby.
