I mean to say that, unlike TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD or GONE WITH THE WIND, there has not been a successful version of THE GREAT GATSBY in another medium. The novel resists it. It is interior, a novella with little physical action other than a tragic trip to New York, and is filtered through the mind of a narrator -- all things that seem uniquely suited to the medium of the novel.
