Laura Z. Hobson’s 1947 book, Gentleman’s Agreement, centered on a magazine reporter in New York who, during the process of writing a story about anti-Semitism, poses as a Jew and experiences discrimination first hand. The novel was adapted into the Elia Kazan-directed movie of the same name, which won three Oscars — including best picture — and starred Gregory Peck, John Garfield, Dorothy McGuire and Celeste Holm. To celebrate the film’s 70th anniversary, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Hollywood Heritage screen clips and host a panel discussion featuring Peck’s daughter, Cecilia, and historian Claudine Stevens.
