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.

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.

The film still has abundant meaning and should be fully and widely enjoyed.
