A Gentleman`s Agreement How I Met Your Mother

When his mother has heart disease, the doctor advises him not to see a specialist with an obviously Jewish name, suggesting that he may be affected. When Phil reveals that he is Jewish himself, the doctor becomes uncomfortable and leaves. In addition, the concierge is shocked to see that a Jewish name appears on the mailbox, instead of his Christian name. Although Phil wants to celebrate his honeymoon in a posh hotel for the rich in the country, the hotel manager refuses to register Phil because Phil is Jewish and tells him to sign up for another hotel instead. Tommy becomes the target of bullies when his comrades discover that he is Jewish. Phil worries about the way Kathy tommy consoles and tells him that his mockery about “dirty Jews” is false because he is not Jewish, not that the nickname itself is false. At a luncheon party, Phil Minify`s divorced niece meets Kathy Lacey (Dorothy McGuire), a schoolteacher who turns out to be the person who originally came up with the story. The next day, Phil tries to explain to his precocious young son anti-Jewish prejudices, just after showing his own anti-female prejudice.

Clinton Anderson said, “He doesn`t rush down the street of a community and asks his citizens to do good. He does not fill the pages of books with words that come together for a sermon. He leaves you comfortably sitting in a theatre, sinking into a problem, going out into the night with your thoughts and lips and saying to your lips: “This situation should be changed”. [8] After the official speeches, there was a show of star varieties, including the Hollywood film world debut of the team of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.
