Elia Kazan's Oscar-winning conscience-raiser was the first Hollywood film to take anti-Semitism as its central theme. Journalist Phil Green (Gregory Peck) is researching a piece on discrimination against Jews. Dissatisfied with his efforts, Green decides to masquerade as a Jew in order to build up first-hand experience of prejudice. As well as Academy recognition for the film and director, Celeste Holm carried home an Oscar for her supporting role.
