Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 11/28/2003
"This atypical performance is one of De Niro's best, amazingly, the same year as TAXI DRIVER."
Total Film - 05/01/2007
3 stars out of 5 -- "[O]ne of the most astonishing casts ever assembled and an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel about Tinseltown itself..."

Product Description:

The seedy underbelly of the Hollywood film industry is brought to light in Elia Kazan's powerful adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's last, unfinished novel. Robert DeNiro anchors the film with his commanding portrayal of 1930s movie mogul Monroe Stahr (modeled after MGM's studio head Irving Thalberg), a ruthless businessman who dominates studio politics but remains haunted by a lost love from his past. Scripted by playwright Harold Pinter, this rich evocation of 1930s Hollywood features strong supporting performances by Tony Curtis, Robert Mitchum, Jeanne Moreau, and Jack Nicholson.

Plot Synopsis:

A lavish film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's last, unfinished novel, adapted for the screen by Harold Pinter. The hero, Monroe Stahr is a young studio head in 1930s Hollywood -- brilliant, enigmatic and driven to a fault. The story centers around his love affair with a bit player and his relationships with the various screenwriters, actors and producers who move in his orbit.
