This adaptation may have worked with the mute button on, but the cheezy
movie-of-the-week score, the shrill cries of Mia Farrow, and the pallid
reading by Robert Redford doom this film. Bruce Dern as Tom Buchanan makes
as much sense as Jimmie 'J.J.' Walker as Muhammad Ali - the physical
strength that defined Tom is totally missing.
The staging, costumes, and incidentals (cars, etc.) are gorgeous, but the beauty of Fitzgerald's prose is nowhere to be found. This must be a difficult work to film, and it shows.
