Re-reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald was on my list of post grad to-do’s, I had originally read it in 10th grade English and knew it was time for a refresher. The preview of the re-done movie version of the book coming out in December is what peaked my interest originally, and I can’t wait to see it! I didn’t know there were older movie versions (and there are a few) until my ever helpful Mom informed me, and luckily Netflix came through and gave me something to watch on a rainy, rare, day off. 🙂 I watched the 1974 version with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, it was FABULOUS!
I have always been a sucker for old movies, the charm and poise of how people (at least in movies) carried themselves is always an inspiration, considering so few people seem to have manners anymore. Not saying that I am any example of supreme elegance and class but I like to believe I know how to behave in situations that aren’t a frat party. Again rambling off topic, I am still working on the re-reading of The Great Gatsby, I have been swamped with work and unplanned happenings this past week. So I full re-count, and probably raving review of how Gatsby takes you back and time and makes you wish you lived in a different era, to come. To tide you over and get excited you about the upcoming release of the newest movie… 🙂
