This third film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic 1925 novel was one of the most hyped movies of the summer of 1974. Robert Redford stars as self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby, who uses his vast (and implicitly ill-gotten) fortune to buy his way into Long Island society. Most of all, Gatsby wants to win back the love of socialite Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow), now married to “old money” Tom Buchanan (Bruce Dern). Calmly observing the passing parade is Nick Carraway (Sam Waterston), Gatsby’s best friend, who narrates the film. Francis Ford Coppola’s screenplay is meticulously faithful to the original novel, but Theoni Aldridge’s costume design and Nelson Riddle’s nostalgic musical score won the film its only Oscars. The huge supporting cast includes Howard da Silva, who played Tom Wilson in the 1949 Great Gatsby, and a very young Patsy Kensit as Daisy’s daughter.

  1. This is one of those novels typically selected for required reading for school. I didn't mind required reading but I never could understand why this book in particular. Perhaps it is because the main characters and their objectives are extremely shallow, too shallow to be interesting.

  2. I like the new one with Leonardo also Leonardo did a great as Gatsby as Robert and Carrie was a great as Daisy as mia . The girl in the new Gatsby that was Josephine copied the girl in the old Gatsby exactly. They both play carefree fun girls great . And Tobey was a great tom as the old one with a little more innocence 😇

  3. Sorry but anyone who falls in love with such a titless ditz as Daisy deserves to be shot.

  4. The heartwarming story of a woman who breaks a mans heart to marry for money, who then goes back to him once he has money.

  5. Sick demented selfish people with no cares for anyone or anything except their own desires.

  6. WOW This is my favorite version. First one I saw was with Alan Ladd. But this beats that one. Beautiful characters, Absolutely beautiful costumes! This movie is a classic! I am surprised it is free. Thank you You Tube !!!!!!

  8. I don't get this movie. Gatsby could have got a real woman. Daisy was never worth a damn.

  9. A lovely novel, I had not read. Sad to see true colors on people with money. I enjoyed the adaptation done few years back with Leonardo de Caprio. Such film was very good too.
