Two recent electronic pieces on The Great Gatsby
A Studio 360 podcast I listened to a few weeks ago (originally broadcast last November) perked up my interest in Gatsby again: American Icons: The Great Gatsby. An hour well spent.
This morning, CBS Sunday Morning did a segment, The end of an era for the "Gatsby house", about the demolition this weekend of the house on Long Island that inspired Fitzgerald's story. The segment offers just the right splash of clips from the Gatsby movie (thankfully no glimpse of Daisy/Mia Farrow), a little narration from the book, and archival photos of the house in its former glory.
