Adapted by Harold Pinter from F Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel about Hollywood in the 1930s, Kazan’s final film has a remarkably starry cast (Ray Milland, Dana Andrews, Theresa Russell, Anjelica Huston and Donald Pleasence are there too) supporting De Niro’s subtle turn as whizzkid producer Monroe Stahr. It’s an intriguing, sumptuously mounted mix of old and new Hollywood, with Kazan eliciting typically strong performances.
