What's in a name....
GYPSY ROSE LEE
These flappers are
some hot chics !!!
...under heat lamps till they are fully featherd
a redhead- a raven- and a blond
Can you guess who is who ?
in the original film version of
THE GREAT GATSBY
Therese Fowler's novel
reveals this blythe spirit whose brilliance is dimmed
by the era in which she lived
as much as by the shadow of her famous husband.
The Roaring Twenties
a time between eras
the wild and the crazy
They threw away their corsets,
and in some cases their clothing
Birth of the Blues
Yet again a Gatsby movie has snubbed the actual locale
where Fitzgerald created Gatsby
on the north shore of Long Island
known as the Gold Coast
The original film version was all Hollywood
The 1974 version was filmed in Newport Rhode Island
and this most recent version went far afield
to the shores of Sydney Australia
when some of the most glorious estates from the beginning of the 20th century
have survived as though frozen in time, one hour away from New York City
For a real Gatsby experience visit these gems
They can be reached by yacht or if you are in the market
for a rich ride you could possibly arrange to test drive a Bentley
No matter how you get there it will be memorable
and probably a whole lot more fun then the rash of
Gatsby parties that this latest film release has sparked
The Vanderbuilt's Estate and all its contents remains a time capsule.

heir to a rairoad fortune.
or was it just TOO much ????
She ran off with
none other than....
Gould sold the property to the Guggenheims...
(French for cliff)
in THE GODFATHER at Falaise
And then there is the McMansion of all McMansions
OHEKA is the second largest private residence in the United States, 109,000 square feet constructed completely of fireproof steel and concrete.
Oheka was the vision of Financier and Philanthropist, Otto Kahn , a German Jew, who like Gatsby was never accepted into GOLD COAST SOCIETY
It was built on an artificial hill so that Kahn could "look down on" the neighbors who had shunned him
The perfect overnight for a full Gatsby experience
From coast to coast
NAMELESS Chickens free range at
Castello di Amorosa
and nameless chickens often end their days deliciously
whereas my jazzy girls with their old fashioned names
will live happily ever after even if
The Motel Chix
is not a real castle
with Mushrooms and Green Peppers
