FLASH ALERT: "GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT" GREGORY PECK THURSDAY 11:15 P.M. EASTERN TCM

[ Edited ]

Screen Shot 2023-01-05 at 7.50.12 PM.png

 

 

11:15 p.m. Eastern TCM--  "Gentleman's Agreement" Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire, John Garfield, Celeste Holm, Anne Revere, June Havoc, Jane Wyatt, Sam Jaffe, Albert Dekker, Dean Stockwell

 

Sorry I didn't alert this earlier.  This classic makes a really fun late-night watch!   Gregory Peck is a writer who pretends to be Jewish in order to report on anti-Semitism.  His conventional fiancee, Dorothy McGuire, is made uneasy by the waves he's making, setting up tension in their previously placid relationship...

The two most interesting performances in this are by Celeste Holm, as the insightful, witty and wistful 'career woman' who secretly yearns for Peck ( and too bad he doesn't reciprocate!),  and John Garfield, as a somewhat embittered service member, in one of his typically dynamic, intelligent and explosive performances.

 

Combine this film with "Crossfire" which follows at 1:30 a.m. for a great double feature.  "Crossfire"s examination of anti-Semitism takes the form of a noir-ish murder mystery, with the three great Roberts--  Robert Mitchum, Robert Young, and Robert Ryan.

 

Edited to fix title!

OH! Oznell 

 

I tried to watch "Vacation From Marriage" today. Got about half way through watching the movie and had to start making dinner.

 

I know I will start to watch "Gentleman's Agreement" and about half way through I will fall asleep.

 

Guess I will watch the movie in pieces. After I finish "Vacation From Marriage".

 

Thanks for the head's up.

Oh, @drizzellla ,  "Vacation from Marriage"--  that's a good one.  I think I've only seen it once--  I love Glynis Johns in anything.  And it has your favorite in it, Robert Donat.

Yes, if Rober Donat is in the movie, I am watching.

Well I am going to get ready for "Gentleman's Agreement".

 

 I caught a bit of the movie "Cause for Alarm" today. Another goody.

I am so glad that we can watch these old movies.
