Gentleman’s Agreement (1947)

Elia Kazan directs Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire and John Garfield in this drama where a journalist poses as Jewish for half a year to root out everyday anti-semitism among his WASP brethren.

An Issues movie with a capital “I”, so wears its heart on both sleeves, but manages to be as thorough as it is preachy. Very good support performances from John Garfield and, especially, Celeste Holm.
