F. Scott Fitzgerald at the Garden of Allah hotel

F. Scott Fitzgerald at the Garden of Allah hotelF. Scott Fitzgerald (author of ‘The Great Gatsby’) moved into the Garden of Allah in July of 1937. Down on his luck and deeply in debt, MGM offered him a lucrative contract to write for the movies. His first important assignment there was “Three Comrades” which was ultimately rewritten by Joe Mankiewicz. Fitzgerald stayed at the Garden for about a year and then moved to a cottage in Malibu. While at MGM he worked on “Madame Curie” starring Green Garson, and “Gone With The Wind” but eventually only received one screen credit.
