Yesterday was the 98th anniversary of the publication of The Great Gatsby.
As we're all aware, it has become a movie several times, but did you know that one adaptation dates back to F. Scott Fitzgerald's era?
In fact, the first adaptation — in 1926, the year after publication — was a silent movie that received moderate praise from critics.
(From its author's wife, however, it received a scathing review: "It’s ROTTEN and awful and terrible.")
