The Great Gatsby (26-Mar-1974)

Director: Jack Clayton

Writer: Francis Ford Coppola

From novel: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Music Supervised by: Nelson Riddle

Producer: David Merrick

Keywords: Romantic Drama

Jay Gatsby, his wealth obtained illegitimately, loved and still loves Daisy; but she, in order to live in the manner in which she had grown accustomed, has married another man. Set in 1920s Long Island, it is a story of aristocracy behaving badly, heavily relying on narration of Gatsby's neighbor, Nick Carraway. Follows the scenes of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, but the cast does not properly capture the characters they are intending to portray. Won Oscars for Best Costume Design and Best Score.
