Trivia

F. Scott Fitzgerald wanted George Cukor to direct the film. At the time, Cukor was a stage director who was credited for the success of The Great Gatsby as a play on Broadway. However, the producers instead hired Herbert Brenon to direct. Cukor later would make his debut as a film director with Grumpy (1930). He would earn five Academy Award nominations for Best Director, ultimately winning for My Fair Lady (1964). See more »
