Description

Gentleman's Agreement is a 1947 drama film about a journalist who goes undercover as a Jew to conduct research for an exposé on antisemitism in New York City and the affluent community of Darien, Connecticut. It was nominated for eight Oscars and won three: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Director. The movie was controversial in its time, as was a similar film on the same subject, Crossfire, which was released the same year. Gentleman's Agreement was based on Laura Z. Hobson's 1947 novel of the same name. It was released on DVD as part of the 20th Century Fox Studio Classics collection.
