Gentleman's Agreement Reviews

Tom Hutchinson
Radio Times

An eye-opener in its day, this exposure of high-society racial prejudice still has the power to compel.

The movie is as powerful today as when it captured the Best Picture Oscar a few years after Hitler's genocide ended in Europe.

You'd think a 60-year-old movie about prejudice would be passé by now. You'd be wrong.

An incisive look at the effects of anti-Semitism and the attempts to stamp it out.

Tame and too hopeful by today's standards, but Kazan's message drama was important in 1947, representing one of the first time that the word Jew was explicity used in a Hollywood picture.

Cinema em Cena

Verdadeiro tratado sociológico sobre a intolerância e o preconceito, o filme continua a impressionar por sua ambição e por se manter atual quase 60 anos depois de realizado.

| Original Score: 5/5

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The film does try to tackle a subject matter that has not been covered too well by Hollywood at the time, and for that alone it should be commended.
