Gentleman's Agreement ★★★ 1947
Magazine writer Phil Green (Peck) looks for a new angle when he agrees to write a series of articles on anti-Semitism for publisher John Minify (Dekker). Phil pretends to be Jewish, and his new identity pervades his life in unexpected ways, almost destroys his relationships. Garfield has a small but powerful role as Phil's Jewish friend Dave, who has long had to deal with both overt and covert prejudice. This movie was Hollywood's first major attack on anti-Semitism. Controversial in its day, yet still timely. 118m/B VHS, DVD .

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
