Episode #20: Gentleman’s Agreement


Ladies & Gentlemen. Welcome to The Envelope Podcast. Here on The Envelope, we discuss & review every Best Picture Winner in the Academy Awards History.

On this episode, we discuss the twentieth Best Picture Winner: “Gentleman’s Agreement.”

“Gentleman’s Agreement” follows journalist Phil Green as he moves to New York City and takes on a high-profile magazine assignment about anti-Semitism. In order to truly view things from an empathetic perspective, he pretends to be Jewish and begins to experience many forms of bigotry, both firsthand and through a Jewish friend, Dave Goldman. Phil soon falls in love with beautiful Kathy Lacy, but their relationship is complicated by his unusual endeavor. Directed by Elia Kazan, the film stars Gregory Peck as Philip Schuyler Green, Dorothy McGuire as Kathy Lacy, John Garfield as Dave Goldman, Celeste Holm as Anne Dettrey, and Dean Stockwell as Tommy Green.
