Josh Drimmer
Hard to find, and for Fitzgerald fanatics only, but it is a fascinating if obviously depressing look at Fitzgerald's efforts in Hollywood and his last days, drinking 20 Coca-Colas a day instead of booze and trying his damndest just to get a screenwriting credit.
Interesting look both into the later, broken years of Fitzgerald and the early days of the movie business.

Two key takeaways: he and Zelda were gigantic assholes during their drunken years, and the man sure loved his Coca Colas when he was trying to stay sober.

A look at FScott during his Hollywood heyday. A glimpse
at the earlier years, and then focuses on the 1937-40 attempts
at remaking himself.

Lots of humor and failure involved. The chapters on trying
to sneak items past the movie censors are fun and revealing of
the nuances of making a film, shows how restrictions inspire

Interesting look at Scott Fitzgerald's attempt to crash Hollywood and get off the sauce. He failed at both.
