The setting of this classic American film is ten years after World War II in a suburban Connecticut town where Tom Rath, a veteran and father of three, struggles with financial difficulties and flashbacks of love and loss during the war. Pressured by his wife, he quits his job and takes on a higher paying but personally unrewarding job on Madison Avenue. In addition to challenges in his current life, Rath is confronted by unresolved issues from the past and works to find his own identity in conflicting priorities.
This film has been hailed as illustrative of the 1950’s culture but with ongoing relevance to today’s issues of individuality and demands of the corporate world. The film stars Gregory Peck, Jennifer Jones, and Fredric March.
Discussion of ‘The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit’ will be facilitated by Deborah Linville.
