His flamboyant lifestyle epitomized the glittering excess of the roaring twenties. His classic stories made him one of the most important American authors of the century. In books like Tender is the Night, and The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald captured the mood and manners of his time. It was a subject he knew well Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda lived a notoriously hedonistic life marked by lavish celebrations and madcap exploits like riding down Fifth avenue on the top of taxicabs and jumping in the fountain at the legendary Plaza hotel. Incredible footage shows the 20s playboy in his element, while interviews with family members and confidantes present an intimate portrait of a literary giant whose life was touched by tragedy. And authors like Tobias Wolff and Joseph Heller reflect on Fitzgerald's legacy and lasting influence. Explore the bittersweet life of F. Scott Fitzgerald the man who gave the Jazz Age its name.
