Viewer Quote: "This version of Scott Fitzgerald's short novel is remarkably faithful to the original. Alan Ladd was the perfect actor for this film, and his performance in this film captures F. Scott Fitzgerald's tragic hero with every nuance, every movement, every hidden torment. Filmed in monochrome, this film captures much of the atmosphere of the 'jazz age' which strangely does not come over in the lavish period detail of the later version."
