Turn To Page 394 Tuesday #1

Posted July 18, 2017 by Whitney in turn to page 394 / 7 Comments

For my first Turn to Page 394, I find it most fitting to start with Harry Potter. Disappointingly, The Prisoner of Azkaban does not have 394 pages, thus […]

Gentleman’s Agreement centers around Phillip Schuyler Green (played by Gregory Peck) who goes undercover as a Jew to report on antisemitism. This film came out shortly after the end of WWII […]
