Elliott Nugent's direction skips along the surface of the era depicted. The script doesn't give him much substance to work with.

Cyril Hume and Richard Maibaum have achieved a dutiful plotting of the novel without the substance of life that made it stick.

This scores over Jack Clayton's lavish and longer 1974 version by the casting of Alan Ladd as Gatsby, so much more convincing as a man with a dark and mysterious past than one-dimensional glamour-puss Robert Redford.
