THE GREAT GATSBY

last night i attended the 14 ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF FILM NOIR  @
THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE.

the wine was flowing, the cheese was spread and the audience dressed to the nine's in their finest 40s attire.
check out the calendar for the rest of the film noir series~ HERE

*special thanks to andrew crane & margot gerber for their hospitality.


the screening of the 1949 version of THE GREAT GATSBY, was superb. what a buried treasure!
it's ironic how alan ladd embodied the role without being much to look at.. his body was underdeveloped, tummy flabby and he was proudly doubled chined, yet he was right on the mark as jay gatsby.
i can't even compare him to robert redford who had the looks, but nothing more.
shelly winters as myrtle wilson, (played by karen black in the 1974 version) was perfection on film, but of course she always was.



THE GREAT GATSBY (1949)
1949, Universal, 91 min, USA, Dir: Elliott Nugent
Resurrected at last is this Golden Age version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, unseen for decades.
 Thanks to our friends at Universal Pictures, Alan Ladd’s noir-tinged take on the timeless tale of shady success and lost love can be seen again, in a brand-new print made exclusively for Noir City!
 Screenplay by Cyril Hume and Richard Maibaum, based on the novel and a play by Owen Davis. 
Directed by Elliott Nugent. An intriguing take on an American classic.
