Various literary studies, such as trauma theory, psychoanalytic approach, historical and biographical approach will be used to analyze the psychological loss and the varieties of traumatic continuation of the protagonist of the novel. It focuses on the thesis: Stahr has suffered traumatic losses of his wife and his girlfriend, and these experiences change his character fundamentally. Most obviously, however, Fitzgerald no longer enjoyed the glamorous times he had previously experienced since The Great Gatsby was published.

Fitzgerald wrote openly of death to Graham: His peculiar charm, his extraordinary good looks, his bountiful success, the tragic end of his great adventure.
The events I have built around him are fiction, but all of them are things which might very well have happened, and I am pretty sure that I saw deep enough into the character of the man so that his reactions are authentically what they would have been in life. So much so that he may be recognized—but it will also be recognized that no single fact is actually true.
As clearly seen from the novel, Stahr, a powerful producer, cannot escape from the loss of his beloved. As a result, the outcome of his conflict is a depressed yearning for the lost person, wandering through life to find the reflection of his dead wife.
Like Gatsby, Stahr is a self-made man. He rises from the obscurity of a Jewish ghetto in the Bronx, New York, to become the ultimate purveyor of dreams. Clearly, Stahr partly achieves his dream when he becomes a very powerful and successful executive.
Stahr is also destroyed by his obsessive pursuit of happiness with a woman who was a mirror image of his dead wife. Even though he transfers the love for his wife to another woman, he cannot heal the scar in his mind and recover from this trauma, thus showing his split identity in life.
As in The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald uses the voice of first-person narrator to tell the story. It is told by Cecelia, the daughter of a producer named Bradogue in Hollywood. She is of the movies but not in them. She probably was born the day The Birth of a Nation was previewed and Rudolf Valentino came to her fifth birthday party. It seems that Cecelia is a perfect narrator for the story because she can genuinely understand the Hollywood community.

Stahr, therefore, becomes a vivid masculine figure in the loving view of the beholder, Cecelia, who has long had illusions about him and idealizes him in every way.
Hollywood, on the other hand, seems to be strange and weird to ordinary people. Hollywood is like a mysterious world: It can be understood too, but only dimly and in flashes. Not half a dozen men have ever been able to keep the whole equation of pictures in their heads. Stahr, therefore, can be regarded as a legend in this mysterious land, showing both his contribution to this place and the power of his work. Additionally, Stahr exhibits his powers not only through his eyes but also through his work.
In a conference with writers Rose Meloney and Wylie White, supervisor Joe Rienmund, and director John Broaca, Stahr shows his dissatisfaction with a script scheduled for production and offers suggestion for improvement.
In order to improve the film, Stahr is willing to replace director Red Ridingwood because Red cannot handle the star actress in his movie. By that he means he wants to unite the whole studio together.
Stahr believes that he can handle his studio and unite everyone to produce the best art forms. A powerful producer, Stahr, however, exhibits the insecurity of an ego injury as the loss of his wife becomes a haunted longing: Stahr…wet night Mr.
However, Stahr seems to be a lonely emperor in his small world, as the trauma of his loss of his beloved has overwhelmed his mind. In reality, Stahr wants to hide everything that reminds him of his dead wife, but he seems not to be able to recover from the pain of the past. Stahr does not love Cecelia but instead finds a woman who looks like his dead wife. At this time, Stahr seems to lose his power and one just sees him as a poor husband who has lost his wife long ago.
Evidently, Stahr seems to have been traumatized by the loss of his wife for a long time. He tries desperately to meet Kathleen again, suggesting that he wants to meet his dead wife once more. Dating a woman with much the same appearance as his dead wife cannot solve his depressive disorder. After Kathleen leaves the ball, Stahr asks Cecelia to dance.
However, Kathleen is not the woman for Stahr. He was poor; his literary reputation in shards. The short fragment of the novel we have about pages is told in narration by Cacelia Brady the rich Bennington educated daughter of the unscrupulous movie mogul Pat Brady based on Louis B. Brady is a womanizer who is crudely and ruthlessly seeking to grasp the reigns of studio power by acing out Stahr for control. Stahr is a workaholic and driven soul dying of a weak heart. He is the widower of a movie star.
Stahr becomes romantically involved with a young English sophisticate named Kathleen. She ditches him for her fiancee. Stahr finds comforts in the arms of his secret admirer whose affections become overt-young Cacelia. As the novel fragment ends they are on the way to a party at the Barrrymore home.
This would have been one of Fitgerald's best books if he had lived to revised the narration and tie together loose ends.
As it stands this work is a glimpse through the Hollywood keyhole of the golden studio era. A well written and spun tole of greed, sex and power in the California sun. Fitzgerald was clearly a master of "show, don't tell.
I was in every scene with him, and felt close acquaintance with the major characters. I also enjoyed his exploration of moral ambiguities in the Hollywood of the mids. One person found this helpful.
I loved the way his mind worked, and the surprising images he threw at us. I also loved to hear his version of the Hollywood he knew. The relationships he described were refreshing and unexpected. It was great also to read his unfinished ideas and notes.
Very F Scott atmosphere All good especially Kelsey So enrapt I ordered the "book" but not only unfinished it is just scribbled notes so don't bother Having read his books I think this series is at least close to what he would have written See all 50 reviews.
