F. Scott Fitzgerald: Winter Dreams (#1502)
This portrait of the iconic writer moves beyond 1920s caricature and Jazz Age stereotype. Original cinematic re-creations of the texts --"The Great Gatsby," "This Side of Paradise," "Tender Is the Night," "The Last Tycoon" -- are illuminated by insights from people who knew Fitzgerald and have never before been interviewed. From St. Paul, Minnesota, to the tip of Long Island to Paris, viewers are transported on F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald's uniquely American journey and enveloped by their deeply emotional commentary.
