King of Hollywoodland. 22 mai 2008
Par Michael G. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The following review of The Last Tycoon refers to the 1969 hardcover edition, published by Scribner's and edited by Edmund Wilson.

The Last Tycoon by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a work of fiction but its protagonist, the enigmatic Monroe Stahr bears more than a passing resemblance to real life Hollywood icon Irving Thalberg. Thalberg was an enormously influential producer who took Hollywood by storm only to die at the tender age of 37. Quite ironically, F. Scott Fitzgerald died suddenly at the age of 44 while writing The Last Tycoon. One can only speculate as to how powerful this novel might have been had Fitzgerald lived long enough to complete and further refine the already wonderfully compelling narrative.
We know from the very interesting notes written by the author and presented as a supplement to the text of this unfinished novel that Fitzgerald did not approach the creation of The Last Tycoon lightly. This was a labor undertaken with meticulous attention to plot and character development. Specific scenes were crafted to create just the right mood or get across to the reader just the right message. One would be hard pressed to name another book about the rough and tumble world of Hollywood that contains the degree of nuance found in The Last Tycoon.
One of the most remarkable aspects of this work is the empathy Fitzgerald shows toward his fictional creation, the larger than life producer Monroe Stahr. As a noted author who found himself laboring over movie scripts in an era when such work was considered demeaning for real artists, one would have expected Fitzgerald to display a more cynical, less complimentary view of the movie production overlords of the 1930s....most of whom were semiliterate at best. On the contrary, Stahr is presented as a complex, supremely capable and kind individual who, though lacking in formal education, knows his business inside and out.
The Last Tycoon is first and foremost about Monroe Stahr but the narration is provided by Cecelia Brady, a young woman who admires Stahr and is not so secretly in love with him. In the very first chapter, Fitzgerald has Cecelia say the following: "It's more than possible that some of the pictures Stahr himself conceived had shaped me into what I was." After reading that line, I had to wonder if Cecelia was speaking for just herself and Stahr or for all of us and Hollywood in general.
Though unfinished, The Last Tycoon is an important, thought provoking book. Highly recommended.

It's widely thought that had he finished it, this novel would have been Fitzgerald's masterpiece. As it is, about half of the planned chapters completed, it is wonderfully readable. And this edition is one to cherish, with its lovely period pictures.

Just when I thought I had covered all the F. Scott Fitzgerald, this little beauty pops up and yaps at me. I love his style, I love his grace. His buddy Hemingway said 'grace under pressure' and I think F. Scott was the exemplar of that philosophy.

Like other great unfinished works, from Twain's Mysterious Stranger to Dead Souls, this is one that fate sadly stole from us to leave us only wondering at what might have been. Smashing book. Just as enjoyable the second time.

If only Fitzgerald hadn't died far too young, this might have been better than the great gatsby, what's left is certainly very good. And i like the cover with Thalberg on it, he inspired the main character!
