The Secret Screen Life Of Scott Fitzgerald  | L’avventura (1960)
L’avventura (1960)

There’s a paperback cameo for Fitzgerald in Antonioni’s trippy masterpiece, with Lea Massari’s mysterious blonde packing a copy of Tender Is The Night in her baggage. It’s no coincidence that this is the book she’s reading just before her disappearance sparks two hours of existential ennui – and not just because it’s a ripping holiday read for those languid trips to Sicily. The film mirrors many of the novel’s themes: a search for meaning, lust and the boredom of wealth.

We'd like to be bored of wealth. Just for a change.
