Gatsby Trailers 1926 and 2013

This week I have been reading the Great Gatsby as it is one of our upcoming books in The Vintage Book Group. I can’t wait to see the new film it looks fabulous. It is the fourth film version to be made with subsequent versions in the 20s, 40s, and 70s.

Sadly the first ever Gatsby film is now tragically lost along with thousands of other silent movies of the era. I find it tragic to think of lost films and hope that one day undiscovered copies will be discovered. Luckily the trailer for the 1926 movie survives and its great to compare in to the modern-day trailer…
