Hi Martha,

I checked on IMDB, and there's no film that matches the 'Gentlemen's Agreement' title. There's a couple of silent films from the Teens, but they're 'A Gentleman's Agreement', with no descriptions. There's also the 1947 'Gentleman's Agreement', but I'm sure that's not the one that you want.

There is a movie that was just released on Blu-ray and DVD by Criterion - 'Design For Living' (1933) - that concerns a two man, one woman living arrangement. It was directed by Ernst Lubitsch, with Gary Cooper, Fredric March and Miriam Hopkins. Here's a review of it:

Thank you! I think that must be it. I must have completely gotten the name wrong.

Easy enough to do. And even if it isn't the movie you were thinking of, it's a Lubitsch, so it's probably well worth watching. It's on my list to see...

We were taught about Dorothy Arzner, and I remember hearing about Frances Marion as a screenwriter, but I didn't know until just now that she was a director as well. Will look forward to seeing her things.

You're right, Martha--I didn't know ANY of that. (Not a movie buff, but sure didn't realize how prominent women were in screenwriting, directing, producing, etc. in that era.)

I know that women composers were ignored/forgotten--mostly because KMFA has had that program "Into the Light" bringing works by women onto the air.
