Synopsis Jack Clayton's version of THE GREAT GATSBY was adapted for the screen by Francis Ford Coppola from F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 masterpiece about a handsome and enigmatic tycoon betrayed by the American Dream. Though self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby (Robert Redford) has been in love with the spoiled Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow) since his days as a poor boy in the Midwest, she's now married to a boorish philanderer (Bruce Dern) and seems more out of reach than ever. Gatsby's attempts to win Daisy back result in his tragic downfall, as witnessed and narrated by his neighbor and friend Nick Carraway (Sam Waterston). The result is a richly successful evocation of the Jazz Age and a tragic portrait of shallow lives ruined by wealth, brilliantly acted by Redford, Waterston, Dern, and the rest of the supporting cast.The young child, Pamela Buchanan, was played by British actress Patsy Kensit, better known for her roles in ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS and LETHAL WEAPON 2, as well as her short-lived marriage to Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher. Sound editor Terry Rawlings also served as the technical consultant. Estimated budget: more than $6 million. This was the third version of THE GREAT GATSBY produced by Paramount. The first was made in 1926, just one year after the book's publication; Herbert Brenon directed and adapted the book and Becky Gordner did the script. Warner Baxter played Gatsby, Loris Wilson was Daisy, Hale Hamilton was Tom, Georgia Hale played Myrtle Wilson, and William Powell was Scott Wilson. Neil Hamilton played Nick Caroway. The second version was made in 1949 by director Elliot Nugent.[With] a Nelson Riddle score, some nice shirts, and top vintage cars.3 stars out of 5 -- Bruce Dern and Karen Black bring pizzazz to the party as Farrow's thug of a husband and his mistress respectively.
