Magazine writer Schuyler 'Phil' Green, a widower who has just arrived with his mother and young son in New York, is assigned the task of writing an expose of anti-Semitism. As he searches for a new angle on the topic, he decides to pass as a Jew for several months, which causes no end of trouble for his ailing mother and young son. It also puts his new society girlfriend on the spot, since despite all her intellectual convictions, she cannot quite shake the vicious prejudices of her particular group. In the 40s, Hollywood began exploring serious social problems in an upfront manner, and while a trifle too earnest for some people, this film puts the 'gentleman's agreement' among gentiles to discriminate against Jews directly in the spotlight

Leave her to heaven by John M Stahl( Visual )

8 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A driven woman, linked by incestuous bonds to her now dead father, pathologically demands a love which her conventional, uncomprehending husband cannot give her. Except for the passing moment when she scatters her father's ashes to the wind, such obsessive passion cannot find fulfillment and impels her to revolt through acts of murder, abortion and suicide. The trial, at the film's end, a parody of normal legal processes, ultimately becomes an implicit statement of society's incomprehension of such inner strength twisted by the lack of understanding of those around her.
