The novel The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the film The Great Gatsby, directed by Jack Clayton in 1974, are two classic creations of the same tale. Both stories occur during the Roaring 20’s when the economy was booming, and money was flowing. “F. Scott Fitzgerald 's novel, The Great Gatsby, follows Jay Gatsby, a man who orders his life around one desire: to be reunited with Daisy Buchanan, the love he lost five years earlier. Gatsby 's quest leads him from poverty to wealth, into the arms of his beloved, and eventually to death,” (Maurer, Cliffnotes, 2018, para.
However, this example does not prove that Gatsby embodied his dream but rather displays the downfall of his scandalous methods that ultimately resulted in the corruption that led to his death.

Indeed there is danger and it George B. Wilson, who shoots Gatsby then shoots himself. The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, takes a quick turn from Chapter 7 to the ending of Chapter 8.

The Great Gatsby , a film that stars a man by the name of Jay Gatsby, but originally named James Gatz, who grew up in a low status household. As an officer in the war, Jay met the love of his life, Daisy, who he could not marry due to his low status and the fact that he was in the war. Later, after the war, Gatsby disguises himself as an upperclassman who rich and tries to earn Daisy back- through the effort of her cousin, Nick Carraway, who also lives next door to Gatsby- but now, happily married.

The song was produced specifically for this movie and is a story of the rise of Jay Gatsby if the lyrics are properly interpreted. Fitzgerald would have preferred this type of music for this scene as it deepens the real story behind Gatsby and the type of place that they are meeting in, one filled with corruption and crime. There have been several renditions of the novel The Great Gatsby originally created by author F. Scott Fitzgerald, some of the most popular being the 2013 film produced by Baz Luhrmann and the 1974 film by Jack Clayton. If Fitzgerald were to still be alive and have viewed both flicks I believe that he would have preferred the 2013 version as it has stronger details and a deeper connection to the novel. When watching this movie you can see the FItzgerald flare of heightened details
A director named Baz Luhrmann turned The Great Gatsby into a film. By casting the right actors to portray the characters, Luhrmann effectively recreated the book on screen.

Even when Nick asks a common partygoer, Klipspringer, to to the funeral, he is more concerned about “a pair of shoes” he left and wonders if “it would be too much trouble to have the butler send them on” (Fitzgerald 169). Gatsby hosted countless parties with uncomparable entertainment, yet all of his guests ultimately ignore his death and funeral. Klipspringer “[cared] more about his lost tennis shoes” (Lewis 6) than the kind host of so many parties.
Upon being aware of this Tom tells Myrtle's husband, George that Gatsby was driving without regards to the fact that Gatsby could've changed his mind. George assumes that the driver of the car must have been Myrtle's lover and so he pays Gatsby the last visit of his life before saying goodbye to his own life as well. The remembrance ceremony for Gatsby held by Nick hardly saw a ghost. Disgusted Nick severs his ties and heads back to the Midwest. Throughout the novel Fitzgerald employs a number of literary techniques these include symbolism which appeared in the form of the green light at the end of Daisy's dock that had Gatsby enthralled it represents Gatsby's hopes and dreams, everything that haunts and beckons
Daisy destroys Gatsby by her hands. This is the end of the story, and end of the legend love story.
