A Pictorial History of the Movies: 1947 – Gentleman’s Agreement


That’s what this one is about.

Take that, Hitler.

I mean, granted, every year in film history is represented by Jews (right, Mel?), but this film really takes the cake on that.

This film is why I avoided a lot of social problem films thus far. Because this film is really the big one of them all. (more…)


Pic of the Day: “I’ve been saying I’m Jewish, and it works.” “Why, you crazy fool! It’s working?” “It works too well. I’ve been having my nose rubbed in it, and I don’t like the smell.” “You’re not insulated yet, Phil. The impact must be quite a business on you.” “You mean you get indifferent to it in time?” “No, but you’re concentrating a lifetime into a few weeks. You’re not changing the facts, you’re just making them hurt more.”
