Day 22: Gentleman's Agreement

Today's movie Gentleman's Agreement (1947) was an amazing look at anti-semitism and is alleged to be part of why it's director Eli Kazan and other performs were asked to testify before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee  ~ it also won 3 Oscars. Gregory Peck's Phil Green seeking to do an expose on anti-semitism pretends to be Jewish for several weeks. Further complicating his new romance with Dorothy McGuire.  John Garfield and Celeste Holms and Anne Revere as his mother also star.
