The Great Gatsby is a surviving silent film that was made one year after F. Scott Fitzgerald's book of the same name was published. It was produced by the Famous Players-Lasky and released by Paramount Pictures as part of their 15th Anniversary. The film only survives on VHS, but it's not online yet. However, the trailer for the film from the 1926 VHS of Old Ironsides is still available if you don't have the VHS.
