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
creativity.

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.

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

This focuses on Fitzgerald ' s time in Hollywood at the end of his life. This shows great insight into the inner workings of movie making while giving us a picture of Fitzgerald ' s frame of mind. Latham did his homework, referencing movie scripts, personal letters, and working in appropriate quotes from The Last Tycoon.
