Other notable Peck films of this decade were The Valley of Decision (1945), Alfred Hitchcock`s Spellbound (1945), Duel in the Sun (1946), The Yearling (1946), and Yellow Sky (1948). The film was controversial in its time, as was a similar film on the same subject, Crossfire, which was released the same year (although this film was originally a story about homophobia, which was later changed to anti-Semitism). Gentleman`s Agreement is based on the 1947 novel of the same name by Laura Z. Hobson. It`s about the anti-Semitism of affluent post-war America and the insidious way jews were excluded from high-end social clubs, resorts, and, of course, jobs. There were no official bans, just a nod of meaning and a wink and a “gentleman`s agreement” between conservative-minded non-Wasps Jews that they know the kind of people they want to be associated with. This is the kind of everyday prejudice that Groucho Marx elegantly countered with his joke of not wanting to join a club that would have him as a member. . Gregory Peck`s role in Gentleman`s Agreement (1947) – a controversial film at the time because of his open approach to anti-Semitism – is considered one of his best achievements. Also in 1947, Garfield made one of his most popular films, as well as the film that many critics considered the greatest.

Gentleman`s Agreement still seems like a clever, concise and captivating drama, and although times have changed since 1947, the subject it handles so boldly remains relevant and relevant to this day. Zanuck produced Gentleman`s Agreement (1947), earned him an Oscar for Best Director and also the award for Best Picture. An adaptation by Laura Z. Hobson`s best-selling novel of the same name, the film, has been seen by contemporary audiences as a devastating attack on anti-Semitism, even though it`s in the 21st century. In the first part of a new series, Peter Bradshaw explains why the 1947 drama about a journalist who explores anti-Semitism by posing as a Jew remains a sharp and haughty clock. The film was adapted by Moss Hart from popular author Laura Z Hobson`s bestseller, which she was to write out of outrage at how a congressman had called columnist Walter Winchell a “kike” without anyone having raised a marble. The film is as powerful today as it was when it won the Oscar for Best Picture in Europe a few years after Hitler`s genocide.
