Powerful film still makes one of the most insightful attacks on racism ever shot.

Can Gentleman's Agreement be a salient, good movie, and still be entirely too corny? Maybe it's just because I'm looking back at it from the modern day, but Gentleman's Agreement plays hokey and preachy a lot of the time.

The words ring out with clarity from the Mayfair screen and there is no mistaking their meaning. They are not lost on the wind, but hit you full in the face, making you sit up and take notice of the force behind them.

Diabolically dull and somber to the point that it's almost worth laughing at it, except that Gregory Peck's incredibly serious expressions have the tendency to make laughter dry out and die.

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

Agreement was tame, cautious stuff even back then.

By dispassionate critical standards, Gentleman's Agreement is not a success. It is a tract rather than a play and it has the crusader's shortcomings.

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

Gentleman's Agreement is an important experiment, honestly approached and successfully brought off.

It looks pretty timorous now.

[A] brilliant and powerful film.
November 1, 2007
The style may have dated but the motives which drive the film still feel fresh and energetic.

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

[It] remains a classic crusading film.

October 24, 2006
An incisive look at the effects of anti-Semitism and the attempts to stamp it out.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
July 15, 2006
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.

Good performances, however, particularly from Garfield and Holm.
January 18, 2005
Preachy but effective indictment of anti-Semitism
| Original Score: 3/5
July 21, 2004
A frightening time capsule of ethnic intolerance.
| Original Score: 5/5
April 3, 2004
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
