What a movie!!! Gregory Peck goes undercover as a jew - Why G_d  .... They really are a tortured people.






How about the 99% that actually see the jew as the underdog, and not the monster.

Came out in 1947, the dawn of hollywood jewiness.  Maybe Adam Sandler plays Peck in the remake?  But one thing's a constant, Nazis are evil.

Have always meant to watch Gentleman's Agreement and The Jazz Singer, but haven't yet got around to it. Flashbacks of Judicial-Inc and all the good tip-offs. People I Know with Al Pacino is another unusually revealing flick.

Eli Wurman (Al Pacino) is a Jewish publicist on the out, but all he knows is how to hustle and cajole, threaten and persuade. The hazy mania of his everyday life is fuelled by a steady stream of prescription drugs and alcohol.

One night, Eli's last remaining "big client" Cary Launer (Ryan O'Neal) – an actor considering a campaign for political office – entreats Eli to take care of his latest publicity mess, a dangerous liaison with Jilli Hopper (Téa Leoni), a hard-shelled, quick-tongued television actress with a soft centre and a taste for illegal drugs. The actress takes Eli to a drug-and-sex den, a playground for the rich and famous, where she claims to be looking for a toy.

Jilli is escorted off the premises by security. As she demands to know "Where is my toy?", she finds it and tells the guards, "I got all of you now." Eli is too stoned to understand the exchange.

Eli takes her back to the hotel room, where he takes more pills and passes out right after witnessing what appears to be the actress's murder. In his opiate daze, he cannot be sure. By the next morning, the memory is buried. Eli needs to pull together a charity benefit. He also is tempted to leave New York for good with his former sister-in-law, Victoria. But his work is interrupted by the police who question him and by acquaintances trying to ascertain how much Eli has seen and recalls. Eli finally realizes he is involved in something politically dangerous, and powerful forces are at play to keep his mouth shut.

As he strives to bring together the people he knows – members of the Black and Jewish communities, film stars and media – for the grand fundraiser, Eli's life is in grave danger.

I wish they would make a movie about anti Semitism and the stuff I suffer - just the other day I wondered into the girl's toilet and a mother called me a 'jew pervert'
