Sometimes the internet brings us wonderful things. With Baz Luhrmann’s amped up version of The Great Gatsby now playing in theatres, there has been a lot of attention placed on the somewhat-forgotten 1974 version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel.
The 1974 film The Great Gatsby, directed by Jack Clayton (The Innocents) and adapted for the screen by none other than Francis Ford Coppola who came on board after Truman Capote was fired from the film. In this version of the film, a dashing Robert Redford plays Jay Gatsby, a young Mia Farrow is his Daisy Buchanan, Bruce Dern stars as Daisy’s husband Tom, and Sam Waterston ("Law & Order") as the quiet mid-westerner Nick Carraway.
You know what was missing from that Gatsby? Jay-z songs. Luckily for us, the Clayton version of The Great Gatsbyhas been Baz Luhrmann-ized and re-cut to resemble the second theatrical trailer for 2013’s The Great Gatsby. »
