Less than two years after opening Euro Disney ran out of cash and had to borrow one-hundred and seventy-five million dollars just to keep the theme park open (Spencer, 1995).

Another intriguing parallel between Fitzgerald’s death and Gatsby’s were their funerals. F. Scott Fitzgerald had alienated himself in final years and did not have many friends attend his funeral.
