Gentleman's Agreement was received as a courageously scathing assault on anti-Semitism. Gregory Peck plays a journalist posing as a Jewish man to experience and expose discrimination. Dorothy McGuire plays his fiancée, who dislikes the difficulty this brings but lacks the courage to stand up to prejudice. Nominated for eight Oscars, and winning Best Picture, Director, and Supporting Actress, the film's success marked Kazan as one of Hollywood's leading directors.
