Admitting a procrastination: up until recently I hadn't seen 'The Great Gatsby'. I have now and was blown away, however it was the version with Tobey McGuire and Leonardo di Caprio. Ken Follett's 'Pillars of The Earth' is also a huge favorite (great cast) but I saw it as a TV-series.

Question, Do you intended to have the two The Last Tycoon movies as separate options?

If that's the case then you could also add the newest The Great Gatsby film, or the original (and I think best) version of The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Otherwise, you could delete one Last Tycoon.

Yes. I like one version while others like the other!
Was holding out on suggestions. I agree the 1956 version is better. Will add it if I get no other suggestions.
Thanks
