Silver Screen (1920-1926)"
"Echoes of the Silent Movie Age: F. Scott Fitzgerald on the Silver Screen (1920-1926)" re-examines Fitzgerald’s early career and brings fresh understanding to the life of one of America’s great literary figures. Scholars have previously focused on Fitzgerald’s connection with Hollywood when he worked there as a screenwriter in the 1930s. However, this ground-breaking research reveals the key role that Silent Hollywood played in establishing Fitzgerald’s burgeoning reputation in the early to mid-1920s. Drawing on a wealth of new sources, this talk features Martina Mastandrea’s exciting discovery of the first film ever adapted from a work by Fitzgerald.
