Story

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tale of old money, new money, drinking, and adultery - a thin little book that critics panned - is still the best novel about the American Dream and its discontents.

As part of its American Icons series, Studio 360's Kurt Andersen chases the legacy of The Great Gatsby from Saint Paul, Minnesota, to the gated communities of Long Island, and to Iran under Islamic law. 

American Icons: The Great Gatsby won a Best Documentary: Honorable Mention Award in the 2007 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.
