Here it is the trailer for The Great Gatsby

The book The Great Gatsby written by F. Scott Fitzgerald The book takes place from spring to autumn 1922, during a prosperous time in the United States known as the Roaring Twenties, which lasted from 1920 until the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

Look how they wrote it and all the cast is written in Art Deco Love.....

I have been waiting to see the trailer for a  quit a long time. It comes out in December 2012. If you are a big fan, like me of the Roaring Twenties this movie is for you!

Also there was a 1974 movie made from the book. It is my favorite starring Robert Redford stars as self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby, his love of socialite Daisy Buchanan (Mia Farrow) , her rich "old money " husband Tom Buchanan (Bruce Dern) and Nick Carraway (Sam Waterston) He is Gatsby's next-door neighbor and a bond salesman.

Here are the cast so you can read about the parts they play:

Major characters

Nick Carraway (narrator) — man from the Midwest, a Yale graduate, a World War I veteran, and a resident of West Egg. He is Gatsby's next-door neighbor and a bond salesman.

Jay Gatsby (originally James Gatz) — a young, mysterious millionaire with shady business connections later revealed to be a bootlegger, originally from North Dakota. He is obsessed with Daisy Fay Buchanan, whom he had met when he was a young officer stationed in The south during World War I. Based on bootlegger, and former officer in the Great War, Max Gerlach, according to Some Sort of Epic Grandeur, Matthew J Bruccoli's biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Daisy Buchanan née Fay—an attractive and effervescent, if shallow, young woman; Nick's second cousin, once removed; and the wife of Tom Buchanan. Daisy is believed to have been inspired by Fitzgerald's own youthful romances with Ginevra King and Zelda Sayre. Daisy once had a romantic relationship with Gatsby, before she married Tom. Therefore, her choice between Gatsby and Tom is one of the central conflicts in the novel.

Tom Buchanan — millionaire who lives on East Egg, and Daisy's husband. Buchanan has parallels with William Mitchell, the Chicagoan who married Ginevra King. Buchanan and Mitchell were both Chicagoans with an interest in polo. Like Ginevra's father, whom Fitzgerald resented, Buchanan attended Yale and is a white supremacist.

Jordan Baker — She is Daisy Buchanan's long-time friend, a professional golfer with a slightly shady reputation. Fitzgerald told Maxwell Perkins that Jordan was based on the golfer Edith Cummings, a friend of Ginevra King. Her name is a play on the two then-popular automobile brands, the Jordan Motor Car Company and the Baker Motor Vehicle, alluding to Jordan's "fast" reputation and the freedom now presented to Americans, especially women, in the 1920s.

George B. Wilson — a mechanic and owner of a garage. Wilson is disliked by Tom and his own wife, Myrtle Wilson, who describes him as "so dumb he doesn't know he's alive." When he learns of the death of his wife, he shoots and kills Gatsby, wrongly believing he had been driving the car that killed Myrtle, and then kills himself.

Myrtle Wilson – George's wife, and Tom Buchanan's mistress. She is accidentally killed after being hit by a car, driven by Daisy, though Gatsby takes the blame for it.

Here is one of my designs Daisy would be sporting for sure!
