Cinematic Fictions
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the work of F. Scott Fitzgerald, which gave particular attention to how the characters created their social personae and the self-image they strove to project. Fitzgerald was drawn to all aspects of the movie business and one of his greatest disappointments was his failure to achieve success in Hollywood. The Beautiful and Damned (1922) is the first of his novels to apply cinematic techniques and to investigate the phenomenon of stardom.

Keywords:   F. Scott Fitzgerald, characters, social personae, self-image, Hollywood, Beautiful and Damned
