A famous “social problem” drama of the 1940s, Elia Kazan’s Gentleman’s Agreement deals with the scourge of anti-Semitism in America. Gregory Peck stars as an investigative journalist who goes undercover, pretending to be Jewish in the “polite society” of upper-class New York. He quickly learns just how deep the roots of prejudice and hatred are, even among his own friends. One of the most courageous Hollywood productions of the classical era, Gentleman’s Agreement won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director.
