The Last Tycoon

The Last Tycoon From F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last work, The Last Tycoon follows Monroe Stahr, Hollywood’s Golden Boy as he battles father figure and boss Pat Brady for the soul of their studio.

In a world darkened by the Depression and the growing influence of Hitler’s Germany,

The Last Tycoon illuminates the passions, violence and towering ambition of 1930s Hollywood.Centers on Hollywood’s first wunderkind studio executive in the 1930s,

Monroe Stahr, and the power struggle between him and his mentor and current head of the studio Pat Brady.

Remember F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby set in the roaring 20’s? The lavish parties where champagne flowed like water,

Gatsby’s magnificent library filled with new unread books, the lovely lady singing at the piano, with mascara and tears running down her face, and outside in the driveway, a luxury automobile is stuck in the snow with its wheels spinning?

Welcome to the after-party: The Last Tycoon picks up in the 1930’s. The Stock Market has crashed and caused a Great Depression… Hitler and the hard-right are rising up as a result of unchecked inflation, poverty and hunger. People are desperate.

But they are also nostalgic for better days.

The Last Tycoon paints the picture beautifully

. It is filmed with care and patience.

There is a glow and the characters are perfectly cast. I can see this becoming as popular as Downton Abbey.

I can’t wait to see more!!
