Happy 101st Birthday Eldred Gregory Peck!
April 5th, 1916 - June 12th, 2003

You have to dream, you have to have a vision, and you have to set a goal for yourself that might even scare you a little because sometimes that seems far beyond your reach.

The film is about a journalist who pretends to be Jewish for a few months in order to expose anti-semitism in New York shortly after World War II. 

Zanuck was inspired to produce the film soon after he was declined membership at an LA country club when he was falsely identified as a Jew. 

Kazan won the Oscar for directing, Holm for Supporting Actress and the film was awarded Best Picture. Zanuck accepted the statuette for Best Picture and thanked, among others, Laura Z. Hobson who wrote the novel of the same name, from which the film was adapted.
