When F. Scott Fitzgerald died in 1940, 15 years after the publication of The Great Gatsby, his novel was essentially out of print. This class will review how this nearly forgotten novel became a literary classic by reviewing three film versions.  We will watch and compare the three films to one another, and try to determine which of the three, if any, faithfully portrayed the characters and events in the novel.

Instructor: John Morrison holds a BA in History from West Chester University.  He is a life-long reader and lover of films.  He has read The Great Gatsby every few years since high school. He has also led many discussions on National Parks and the History of England at Strath Haven Condominium meetings.
