Abstract:

Magazine writer Schuyler 'Phil' Green, a widower who has just arrived with his mother and young son in New York, is assigned the task of writing an expose of anti-Semitism. As he searches for a new angle on the topic, he decides to pass as a Jew for several months, which causes no end of trouble for his ailing mother and young son. It also puts his new society girlfriend on the spot, since despite all her intellectual convictions, she cannot quite shake the vicious prejudices of her particular group. In the 40s, Hollywood began exploring serious social problems in an upfront manner, and while a trifle too earnest for some people, this film puts the 'gentleman's agreement' among gentiles to discriminate against Jews directly in the spotlight.
