Copenhagen: Paramount Pictures, Circa 1950. Vintage one-color Danish program for the 1949 film noir, here under the Danish title "Den Store Gatsby - Spritsmuglerkongen." Text in Danish.

The first sound adaptation of Fitzgerald's masterpiece, which was filmed once before as a now-lost silent in 1926 under the auspices of Paramount's former incarnation, the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. Done in a film noir style, and still considered by many to be the best of several screen adaptations, created at the point when the book's reputation was finally beginning to take hold.

Set in New York.

4.5 x 6 inches. 4 pages, side-stapled. Near Fine, with faint edgewear.
