  1. Whoa, I don't think I saw that coming. I had no idea there was a classic version of The Great Gatsby. It'll be interesting to see what you think.

    1. Carissa, it's from 1949, and it was believed entirely lost for decades. But someone found a complete print around 2010 (iirc), and it's been digitally restored and released to DVD. Long and comprehensive review to come! While I was screencapping it last night, I just did the trailer too for fun and thought it was too cool not to share :-)

  5. I saw this in 2014 at the TCMFF at a small venue with a surprise intro by Robert Osbourne and Alan Ladd's son, and it was glorious. R.O. had seen it when he was young and had been looking for it FOR YEARS. :')

    1. Jocelyn, YES! I bought this one from Amazon -- says they only have 1 left right now. It has a really nice picture. No extras except the trailer, which runs after the feature, but it doesn't seem to be a bootleg or anything like that. It's very worth the $16, IMHO.

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
