The Hollywood Foreign Press Association & Hollywood Heritage Present: Evening at the Barn - Gentleman's Agreement: Hollywood's Stand Against Anti-Semitism
On Wednesday, April 12th, Hollywood Heritage Museum and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will present an Evening at the Barn - "Gentleman's Agreement: Hollywood's Stand Against Anti-Semitism".
"Gentleman's Agreement", Laura Z. Hobson's groundbreaking novel examining anti-semitism in New York and the elite communities of Connecticut was published in 1947 to great critical and popular acclaim. Shortly after, it became a top-grossing film in a changing Hollywood that was being affected by federal legislation and the hearings and investigations of the House Un-American Activities Committee.
The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards and was named Best Picture of 1947, additionally winning Oscars for Best Supporting Actress for Celeste Holm and Best Director for Elia Kazan.
Film historian Claudine Stevens will present information about the background of both the book and the movie, with clips, and Cecilia Peck, daughter of the film's star, Gregory Peck, will be on hand to talk about her father and his part in the making of this landmark motion picture.
In order to avoid disappointment, please reserve your tickets now for this special event which will take place in the historic Lasky-DeMille Barn. Free parking is available in Hollywood Bowl Lot "D" which is directly adjacent to the museum.
