The Great Gatsby (1926)
Critic Consensus: Dutifully adapted by director Herbert Brennon, The Great Gatsby faithfully enacts all the novel's prose -- but alas, it captures none of its poetry.

Critic Reviews for The Great Gatsby
It has the usual theatrical deficiencies of stories not originally conceived for the stage; but Owen Davis has adapted it very adroitly, keeping as much of the original dialogue as possible and filling in the gaps with intelligence and a happy invention.
Most of the rest of Scott Fitzgerald's splendid story is brought out in the picture, but somewhere, in the translation into a mile of celluloid, the finer parts of the typed version have been lost.
It is well done, but many persons will wonder whether it was worth doing at all. Seeing it will make nobody happy, nor will it send anybody away feeling more fit to battle against his own troubles.
Fitzgerald has certainly exposed to the public view modern life as one strata of society lives it. And the producers of the picture have made the presentation mode vivid.
