Gentleman's Agreement - cinema review
directed by Elia Kazan, starring Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire, John Garfield
b/w, 118', 35mm, Italian dubbed version
A reporter pretends to be Jewish in order to cover a story on anti-Semitism, and personally discovers that racism survives well-hidden even in post-war America society. Always keen to explore controversial social issues, Kazan directs the first Studio movie about anti-Semitism, choosing an excellent cast for an absorbing parable that never sounds didactic. The film caused a sensation on its release and won three Academy Awards.
