The Great Gatsby: Movie Version

The Great Gatsby: Movie Version
Product Description
Study Guide compares the book The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald to the movie The Great Gatsby (1974) starring Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, and Karen Black, Scott Wilson, Sam Waterston, Lois Chiles, and Bruce Dern. Screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola. Directed by Jack Clayton. A Paramount Picture. This is the first Gatsby movie and still the best. The movie adds and subtracts from the plot of the book, but it’s still worth watching. Party scenes of the Roaring 20s are fantastic!
