This track will be infuriating for anyone who likes "Gentleman's Agreement." Schickel doesn't care for the film, and he spends the entire track hemming and hawing and trying to express in words what it is that dissatisfies him. His basic point is that the movie is too preachy and that the acting "stiffens up" during the more didactic scenes. Havoc and Holm only appear for a few minutes and don't give much information, but they're both clearly proud of the film.
