To Gayle re "Pinky"- Very good points. I agree with you totally and certainly did not mean to imply that any film is obsolete. Even the most innocuous time-waster (which it certainly is NOT) helps us to understand attitudes and ways of life better than any other medium. That is why ALL films must be preserved, not just the official masterpieces. And to the denigrator of "Gentlemens' Agreement"- On re-reading your post on this film, I am struck by how you are infected with the "auteur" disease whereby you attribute the assets and liabilities of the film exclusively to the director. The film was based on a best-seller by Laura Z. Hobson and was produced by Darryl Zanuck as his most prestigious film of the year. And Zanuck was not one to give a director, and particularly a relative newcomer like Kazan, carte blanche in such an important film. And, by the way, Zanuck was not Jewish either!
