FILE - This 1974 file photo originally released by Paramount Pictures shows Robert Redford as Jay Gatsby, and Mia Farrow as Daisy, in "The Great Gatsby." F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” is short, almost novella size. It features larger-than-life characters, glamorous extravagance and dramatic deaths. On its surface, it’s almost certainly the most Hollywood-friendly of the great American novels. But the poetry of “Gatsby” has remained largely locked on the page. Since it was published in 1925, it has been staged as a play and a musical, spawned four previous film adaptations and even been made into an 8-bit Nintendo-style video game in with Nick Carraway must evade cocktail-dispensing butlers and flappers while trying to find Gatsby. On May 10, 2013, Baz Luhrmann will release his “Gatsby,” a 3-D blockbuster spectacle with a star-studded cast, a contemporary soundtrack and hopes of cracking the code of Fitzgerald’s mysterious novel.
