Film Discussion: Movies that Deal with Blacklisting

Gentleman's Agreement


Join us via Zoom as we discuss two movies that deal with blacklisting and antisemitism.

Gentleman's Agreement
 (1947) - This film tells the story of a  journalist  who poses as a Jew to research antisemitism in New York City and affluent communities in Connecticut. It stars Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire, and John Garfield. 

(2015) - Set in 1947,  during the McCarthy era, a successful screenwriter gets blacklisted for his beliefs. Although Dalton Trumbo wasn't Jewish, the film shows how suspicion often focused on Jewish actors, writers and directors. The star-studded cast includes Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, and Dame Helen Mirren.

Both movies are available on Amazon Prime.

Please watch both movies in advance.
