Tired Old Queen at the Movies: 'Gentlemen's Agreement' (1947)


From the wonderful Steve Hayes:
Gregory Peck heads an all star cast in Darryl F Zanuck’s Oscar winning Best Picture of 1947; Elia Kazan’s “Gentlemen’s Agreement.” Based on the bestselling novel by Laura Z Hobson, it deals with the problem of antisemitism just after the World War II. Also in the cast are Dorothy McGuire, John Garfield, Anne Revere, June Havoc and Celeste Holm in the role of the sympathetic reporter that won her an Oscar as best supporting actress. Brilliantly written by Moss Hart, it’s subtly acted, directed and as relevant today as the day it premiered.

I ADORE Steve Hayes!! I just wish he would write a book about old Hollywood, the beefcakes (Dennis Morgan, Monty Cliff, etc) and the great backstories of those fantastic films. Follow him on Twitter, kids!! Thanks Kenneth for giving a little love to Steve.

Think of the "cultural appropriation" tweets this movie would stir up these days.
