5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST Oct. 6 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars How About a CD of the Soundtrack Dec 26 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Gatsby [1974] [Blu-ray] [US Import July 20 2014
By Andrew C. Miller TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The Great Gatsby [1974] [Blu-ray] [US Import] RAVISHINGLY, RICHLY BEAUTIFUL FROM START TO FINISH!

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 Gatsby is mysteriously wealthy... and ready to woo Daisy back. A winner of two Academy Awards, The Great Gatsby features a fine supporting cast and an elegant script 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 [Theoni V. Aldredge] and Best Music [Nelson Riddle]. It also won three BAFTA Awards for Best Art Direction [John Box], Best Cinematography [Douglas Slocombe], and Best Costume Design [Theoni V. Aldredge] (The male costumes were executed by Ralph Lauren, the female costumes by Barbara Matera.) It won a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress [Karen Black] and received three further nominations for Best Supporting Actor [Bruce Dern and Sam Waterston] and Most Promising Newcomer [Sam Waterston].

Cast: Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, Bruce Dern, Sam Waterston, Karen Black, Scott Wilson, Lois Chiles, Edward Herrmann, Howard Da Silva, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Regina Baff, Vincent Schiavelli, Roberts Blossom, Beth Porter and Patsy Kensit

Director: Jack Clayton

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing Story of Idle-Rich in the Roaring 20s March 10 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This lavish Hollywood treatment of the Classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel is a visual and acoustic delight. Nelson Riddle's spellbinding score and the many brilliant camera shots capturing the splendor of an age of excesses and indulgances make for engaging entertainment. Still, the dark story will leave the viewer numb at the eventual (bitter) end.
A young Mia Farrow and Robert Redford in the leads, along with excellent performances by Scott Wilson and Bruce Dern, as well as the 70s "femme fatale" staple Karen Black round out the top, with what seems to be hundreds of colorful "flapper" and servant extras in the cast. Everyone fortunate enough to be born or married or mistressed into money is living the "life", not caring about anyone and anything other than fun, fun, fun.
A series of indiscretions (by just about everyone) culminates in the "just desserts", and several deaths. The fact that life of the high and mighty seems to go on without skipping a beat, regardless of anyone's reclessness or involvement, is the tough lesson the author seems to aim for. Without conscience, what have we? All the money will not replace human emotions, though the cash seems to easily take their place. But didn't we have fun....

Remakes are not usually as good, and this is a classic. I do not have 5 more required words. Very annoying to write reviews in this forced way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gatsby
Its a great classic. There is something heartwarming about it, since it stars Redford, but it doesn't compare to the grand 2013 remake with Dicaprio.
