Peck plays a journalist -- Phil "Schulyer" Green -- who, having been widowed for some years, moves to New York City with his son and mother in pursuit of a new job, where he is assigned a piece on anti-Semitism. He struggles for a while to find a convincing and engaging angle from which he can write the story, and finally settles on [[BlackLikeMe pretending to be Jewish]] so he can experience prejudice first-hand. [=McGuire=] plays Kathy Lacey, his fiancee, who dislikes the difficulty this act brings, and who lacks the courage to stand up and actually confront prejudiced people. Other characters include Anne Dettrey (Celeste Holm), the fashion editor at Phil's magazine who quickly befriends him; John Minify (Albert Dekker), the editor who suggests the piece; and Dave Goldman (John Garfield), a Jewish childhood friend of Phil's who expresses misgivings about the ruse. The title comes from the "gentleman's agreement" between the residents of a particular community not to sell or rent property to Jews.
