Prior to moving East, Nick was rumored to be engaged; however, when the Buchanans ask about this, he says that he “wasn’t even vaguely engaged” (Fitzgerald 18). While he says that one cannot end a relationship “on account of rumors”, he also claims to have “no intention of being rumored into marriage” (Fitzgerald 18). Nick running away from his problems shows his immaturity. Similarly, after he moves, he says that he had a “short affair with a girl who lived in Jersey City... but her brother began throwing mean looks in my direction, so when she went on her vacation in July, I let it blow quietly away” (Fitzgerald 45). He continues to refuse to face problems in his relationships and instead abandons them, which further shows his childish approach to dating and relationships.

The novel the film is based on has “no story,” Mayer consistently bemoans. Aside from the lack of conventional plot, Huston also plans to cast no stars in the film, further hurting its chances of turning a profit.

Ross details the casting of the film’s star Audie Murphy, a war hero who never acted before The Red Badge of Courage, along with the rest of
It is the “phoniness” he wants to blame. Salinger used “phony” this word many times in the book and is one of the most famous word from “The Catcher in the Rye” and it accurately describes the human nature of most adults’. During Holden’s three-day-trip in New York, he has met and encountered with many characters who are pretentious and fake, from Mr. Spencer to Luce and Sally.
