I enjoyed the recent take on the Great Gatsby, but it is no comparison to the original. The actors and actresses are better in the original, and the story comes across better in the original. Compare both and see what you think.

The Great Gatsby" (1974) is a story of decadence and decay from the 1920s, spawned from the pen of imminent author, F.Scott Fitzgerald. It's full of wanton greed, lust, sex and murder set during the flapper age. Robert Redford is the quintessential sexy, Jay Gatsby. He's at once a charmer and a recluse, throwing lavish parties on his Long Island estate for the ritzy jet set, though rarely attending except in absentee through a bird's eye view from his second story window. But Gatsby's unassuming secretiveness is brought into the light when he meets gawky paramour, Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow). She's a godless, flighty flapper, married to a wealthy playboy, Tom (Bruce Dern), and cousin to the introspective, Nick Carraway (Sam Waterston) the young man living on the cottage near Gatsby's estate. Nick is genuine and Gatsby, sensing that he can trust Nick, confides in him his romantic interests in Daisy. The two become lovers - a relationship which is genuine for Gatsby but shallow, fleeting and inconsequential to Daisy. She soon returns to Tom who decides to set Gatsby up with the accidental hit and run of Myrtle Wilson (Karen Black) that he has committed. Tom and Myrtle used to be an item and Tom's impregnation is passed off as Gatsby's, leaving Myrtle's distraught husband, George (Scott Wilson) with murder on his mind. Despite a screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola and stellar production values the film generally misses its mark in recanting the tale of a millionaire playboy, brooding away in his locked mansion for the woman that he lost. There's just something about Fitzgerald's writing that doesn't translate well to the big screen.
The transfer is a huge, strange disappointment. Despite being anamorphically enhanced the picture elements look as though they've been fed through a meat grinder.

Much has been written about later versions of The Great Gatsby on video and DVD and how Nelson Riddle's score had been deleted due to "copyright" laws. I'm glad that now the original score is back....now, what can we do to have the double album soundtrack transferred to CD format?

THE GREAT GATSBY [1974] [Blu-ray] [US Import] Ravishingly, Richly Beautiful From Start To Finish! Gone Is The Romance That Was So Divine!

The '20s never roared louder than in this sumptuously romantic retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age classic. Robert Redford stars as Jay Gatsby, who had once loved beautiful, spoiled Daisy Buchanan [Mia Farrow], then lost her to a rich boy. But now Jay Gatsby is mysteriously wealthy... and ready to woo Daisy back. ‘The Great Gatsby’ features a fine supporting cast and an elegant screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola. And at its centre is the opulent evocation of an era of hot jazz and cold champagne, of women as exotic and demanding as hothouse flowers, and of lives made soft by too much, too soon.

FILM FACT: The film won two Academy Awards® for Best Costume Design for Theoni V. Aldredge. Best Music for Nelson Riddle. It also won three BAFTA Awards for Best Art Direction for John Box. Best Cinematography for Douglas Slocombe. Best Costume Design for Theoni V. Aldredge. The male costumes were executed by Ralph Lauren, and the female costumes by Barbara Matera. It won a Golden Globe® Awards for Best Supporting Actress for Karen Black. It received three further nominations for Best Supporting Actor for Bruce Dern and Sam Waterston. Most Promising Newcomer for Sam Waterston. The Rosecliff and Marble House mansions in Newport, Rhode Island, were used for Jay Gatsby's house while scenes at the Buchanans' home were filmed at the Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. One driving scene was shot in Windsor Great Park, England. Other scenes were filmed in New York City and Uxbridge, Massachusetts.

Format: DVD
F. Scott Fitzgerald presents taut tension and symbolism between Modernism and Victorianism in the 1925's quintessential jazz age of the great American novel, "The Great Gatsby" and this 1974 adaptation of Fitzgerald's novel with Francis Ford Coppola's screenwriting captures the better part of it!
Daisy's green light at the end of her dock that symbolizes all hope and want in not just Gatsby but all people, the "haves" and the "have-nots", guilt and carelessness, living above judgement and consequences, and of course, the eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg over the "valley of the ashes"... All are all beautifully and sadly portrayed.
Mia Farrow as the self centered, one-dimensional Daisy, Bruce Dern as the philandering Tom and Robert Redford as the nouveau riche, enamoured Gatsby turn in quite decent performances.
As Nick says, "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money ortheir vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made."
However, it is Karen Black as Myrtle, Scott Wilson as George and a sublime Sam Waterson cast as the perfect Nick are the highlight of this film along with the musical score, great costuming and elaborate set design.
This is well worth the watch and I enjoy this adaptation more than the A&E presentation, of which I USUALLY favor!
"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no
matter- tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther..... And one fine morning - " (Nick)
Happy Watching!
