Description

Who didn't read F Scott Fitzgerald's 'A Diamond as Big as the Ritz' or 'The Great Gatsby' at university?! Not necessarily for any Eng. Lit. course but for the sheer Jazz Age excess expressed in the stories. And of course for the delicious writing - like creme brulee. Curiously though, and when I think back, I had no strong mental image of either the writer or his wife. So I started to look at what photographs there were around and was stunned to find so much film footage of them existed! So I’ve gathered up what I could find: [1] Zelda as a young woman and walking about rather saucily and hip-swinging in a garden. [2] Zelda a little older and playing gaily about in a street. [3] The couple with daughter Frances and in a garden. [4] On the Riviera in 1924. [5] And in a cafe. [6] Finally, F Scott Fitzgerald working on 'The Great Gatsby'. Happily, my visual memory bank of the gilded couple is now full to overflowing! Enjoy!
