Would've Been Terrific!
12 December 2013 | by (Economic Capital Of India) – See all my reviews

It is too sad that we don't have any of the film left except some bits & pieces. Would've been a great experience to watch the people of the "Lost Generation" to play fictional characters who are people of that same generation.

Well, I'm no masochistic to rate & review a film without watching it, but I would give anything to watch the first film adaptation of one of the greatest American novels. Well the trailer's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGx-78RRu5g) got few scenes which makes me wanna time travel to 1926. Alas! that would stay a dream. Saluting the whole crew of the film for making it (nevertheless) while the roaring twenties was moving away from celluloid.

But the author & his wife both "loathed" the movie, maybe because of the shortcomings of a silent movie to adapt a talkative novel. But, the sheer greatness lies in the inception & creation.

This is not a review & I do not intend to give false critique. Just that, there will never be any user review for this title made me gloomy.
