"Great Gatsby: Midnight in Manhattan" from BBC Home Entertainment
Produced in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the publication of "The Great Gatsby," this fascinating documentary explores the turbulent life and dark creative spirit of its writer, F. Scott Fitzgerald.
It examines his disappointing college days at Princeton, his disastrous marriage to Zelda, his difficult relationship with Hemingway, and his tendency to sell out and compromise his talent for cash, which led to his turbulent last days in Hollywood.
It dispels the age-old mythology surrounding Fitzgerald, largely created by himself, which tends to glamorize the Jazz-Age and his alcoholism.
"What a Trout Sees: A Fly-Fishing Guide to Life Underwater" by Geoff Mueller
Do trout sleep? And if so, when? And how does that affect their feeding patterns? Does a rising or falling barometer affect feeding habits? How does refraction influence a fish's approach to a surface fly, human shadow, or false cast? How much do fish need to eat, under what conditions will they grow the largest?
For the first time, an accessible, well-written title shows us what the world is like under the water, from the fish's perspective.
