Gentleman`s Agreement Ending

Kathy`s attitude is revealed later that she and Phil announce their engagement. His sister Jane (Jane Wyatt) invited him to a party at his home in Darien, Connecticut, known as a “restricted” community in which Jews were not welcome. Fearing a clumsy scene, Kathy wants to tell her family and friends that Phil claims to be Jewish, but Phil imposes himself against Kathy to tell only Jane. At the party, everyone is very friendly with Phil, although many people are “unable” to participate at the last minute. Not only are the basic elements of Hobson`s work preserved, but in some cases they retain a larger dimension and greater plausibility. This applies to adaptation, staging and performances. Thus, the first meeting between Phil Green and Kathy is more understandable on the screen than on the printed page. Similarly, the couple`s other scenes, especially the initial love scene, dramatize their irresistible reciprocal physical attraction that overcomes their violent philosophical differences. It is about the anti-Semitism of prosperous post-war America and the insidious way in which Jews were excluded from high-level social clubs, resorts and, of course, jobs. There have been no official bans, just a nod and a nod and a “gentleman`s agreement” between nice conservatives they know the kind of people they want to be associated with. This is the kind of everyday prejudice that Groucho Marx elegantly dismissed with his joke that he did not want to join a club that would have him as a member. Phil Green is a respected investigative journalist.

He moved to New York after accepting a contract to write a detailed article for a magazine. The article is about anti-Semitism and is very current, because there is a lot of prejudice against Jews in the United States at the time. However, this is not a new topic and Phil`s editor wants him to approach the subject in an original way. After much brainstorming, Phil decides to pose as a Jew to experience the prejudice up close. He is not ready for what he finds.

It is courageous to say something about a problem in today`s life, and it is open in the proverb. It was staged with a rare understanding of Elia Kazan. The film is awesome and worth seeing.

Zanuck and his assistants Moss Hart, who wrote the film, and Elia Kazan, who directed it, kept their film in Hollywood folklore, and nothing changed outside. Gentleman`s Agreement is an `A` image from the opening panorama of the New York skyline to the final embrace. It`s not that the explicit bigot language was unusual in some way. The film was adapted by Moss Hart after the bestseller by popular author Laura Z Hobson, who moved her .B. by outrage at how a congressman called columnist Walter Winchell a “kike” without anyone whispering. At a luncheon party, Phil Minify`s divorced niece meets Kathy Lacey (Dorothy McGuire), a schoolteacher who turns out to be the person who originally came up with the story. The next day, Phil tries to explain to his precocious young son anti-Jewish prejudices, just after showing his own anti-female prejudice. Green tells his mother that he is impressed by the strange idea that the idea for the article came from “a girl” in the magazine. Her mother replies, “Why, women will think next.” Phil and Kathy are starting to date. You agree to keep it secret that Phil is not Jewish.
