The Great Gatsby (1974) Blu-ray

Posted February 14, 2013 08:20 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of director Jack Clayton's The Great Gatsby (1974), starring Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, Bruce Dern, Karen Black, Scott Wilson and Sam Waterston. The Oscar-winning period romance arrives on Blu-ray on April 23rd.

Synopsis: The '20s never roared louder than in the sumptuously romantic retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age classic. Redford stars as Jay Gatsby, who had once loved beautiful, spoiled Daisy Buchanan (Farrow), then lost her to a rich boy. But now Gatsby is mysteriously wealthy and ready to risk everything to woo Daisy back. A winner of two Academy Awards (Best Costume Design and Best Music), The Great Gatsby features a script by Francis Ford Coppola. And at its center is the opulent evocation of an era of hot jazz and cold champagne, of women as exotic and demanding as hothouse flowers, and of lives made soft by too much, too soon.

The Great Gatsby was acquired by Warner Bros. from Paramount earlier this year through a deal the studios struck in 2012 in which Warner gained access to more than 600 Paramount catalog titles. Exact technical specifications and special features have yet to be revealed.

Never saw this one. Read the book in college. Hoping to see this one before the Laz Burhman one comes out this summer.

Nice. Maybe Warner can release a double feature with the new Baz Luhrmann movie in a year or two.

Perhaps some sort of free ticket or discount towards the new film will be included as an incentive for more people to see the new version in theaters instead of waiting for home video.

Based on classic material adapted by Coppola with a great director and a couple of the 60s/70s biggest moviestars this should have been a homerun. This movie is imo a complete turkey. The only thing good about it is that it captures the look of the 20's.

This movie's not that bad. Has a nice cast (like the upcoming one) and it was written by Coppola, who of course writes a lot of great things. So, it's worth a look.

Great story, decent movie. (Waterston is good and Dern is his most sinister.) However, considering it had more focus than a Barbara Streisand movie I'm not sure how great it's going to look on Blu-ray.

Wonder if it will have the original score o the newer one that was used when a remastered version came out on laserdisc years ago. In order to have the original score I had to get the full screen, non remastered version on laser.

@benz - See this one instead, if only to prove some cynical point about Luhrmann.
