In celebration of the Warner Bros. release of Baz Luhrmann’s, The Great Gatsby this week I thought it would be fun to share images and clips of the classic versions of the film. A post dedicated to my own indulgence.
“Although a lost film, the trailer survived and is one of the 50 films in the 3-disk boxed DVD set called “More Treasures from American Film Archives, 1894-1931” (2004), compiled by the National Film Preservation Foundation from 5 American film archives. It is preserved by the Library of Congress (AFI/Jack Tillmany collection) and has a running time of 1 minute.” (IMDB)
