Summary
Gregory Peck stars as Philip Green, a highly respected writer who is commissioned by a national magazine to write a series of pieces on anti-Semitism in America. Unsure how to approach the subject, Green ultimately decides to assume the role of a Jewish man and write the story from that view. As his story unfolds, Green begins to experience first hand the bigotry and hatred Jewish people face daily
