Gentleman`s Agreement Picture
For all the good the film does, it becomes a bit through the numbers. You know that if Phil asks his son to tell classmates that he is Jewish, it will later lead to harassment in the film. It makes you lose a little bit of effect. This is also the reason why it would be a perfect film to present it to the students. The film ends with a few scenes where we philosophize about the falsity of discrimination. Of course, everything is true, but it`s a little too much to tell than to show. It is still an important film and even more to earn the best image. But gentleman`s agreement is not only shy. There`s a great scene at the end, where Dave Kathy quietly confronts his failure to speak out when one of his clever guests made a joke about a “kike.” Revere refused to testify, and even though Garfield appeared, he refused to “give names.” It`s about the anti-Semitism of prosperous post-war America and the insidious way jews were excluded from high-level social clubs, resorts, and, of course, jobs. His sister Jane (Jane Wyatt) invites him to a party at his home in Darien, Connecticut, known as the “restricted” community where Jews are not welcome. Fearing an unpleasant scene, Kathy wants to tell her family and friends that Phil claims to be Jewish, but Phil wins to get Kathy to only tell Jane.
