One the greatest unknown movies of all-time

When talking about either the Oscars or Gregory Peck, this great film is usually lost and in most cases unknown by the general movie public. A film of great importance for a number of reasons:

1. This film was produced by a non-Jewish producer who didn't like it when the "big guys" tried beating up on the "little guy." The producer, because of his name, was banned from various clubs because they thought he was Jewish.

2. This film was made about 2 years after the Holocaust and American thought that the ideas that Nazi's spread were dead in Europe. This movie proved a wake up call for American's about anti-Semitism.

3. The directing of Eli Kazan and a great cast and a strong story.

Three of many reasons why this film is one of the best and why you should AT LEAST rent this movie and be prepared to be shocked and learn about a rarely discussed topic, anti-Semitism in America.

What he said.

Please read Gregory Perlman's review, he's 100% right, this is a tragically overlooked film.

Aged poorly but some nice "Atticus Finch" from Peck

The whole romance and storyline are a little silly, seeing how much culture has changed in the past sixty years, but the subject matter (anti semitism) and how its dealt with is definitely worth watching for. And for Gregory Peck's performance, because he's pretty much just playing his Atticus Finch character.
