  1. Nice pick. I enjoyed this adaptation. I particularly liked Chiles as Jordan but Bruce Dern was a perfect Tom too.

  2. I liked Sam Waterston as Nick too, but Mia Farrow seemed all wrong as Daisy. Redford was kind of a non-entity as Gatsby. Poor Lois Chiles ended up in the worst James Bond film ever: Moonraker.

  3. Yeah. She and Jaws were the best part of Moonraker (though even Jaws wasn’t as goo there as he was in The Spy Who Loved Me.
