THE TRIP
1967, MGM Repertory, 85 min, USA, Dir: Roger Corman

Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Bruce Dern and Susan Strasberg star in this Jack Nicholson-scripted story of a burned-out TV commercials director who takes the ultimate acid trip. American International Pictures changed the ending without Corman’s approval to suggest a more anti-drug stance; still, the film captures the Sunset Strip at the height of its lurid, frenzied glory. Music by The Electric Flag.


THE GREAT GATSBY
1974, Paramount, 144 min, USA, Dir: Jack Clayton

“Gone is the romance that was so divine.” Director Jack Clayton (THE INNOCENTS) directs Francis Ford Coppola's screenplay adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel about the tarnished and tragic American dream, Robert Redford excels as the ill-fated, hopelessly determined Jay Gatsby, while Mia Farrow plays the sweet but poisonous Daisy Buchanan, with Bruce Dern as her bullying husband, Tom. Theoni V. Aldredge received an Oscar for her glittering 1920s costume design, while Nelson Riddle received an Oscar for Best Original Score.
