    I have a trivia quiz on "Diamond as Big as the Ritz" over in funtrivia.com. And has anyone seen the bigscreen adaptation of "Babylon Revisted", "The Last Time I Saw Paris", starring Elizabeth Taylor and Van Johnson?

    Terry – I have not seen "The Last Time I Saw Paris", but did pick up the American Short Stories series version of "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" starring Shelly Duvall as Bernice and Bud Cort (ala "Harold and Maude" fame) as Bernice's would-be suitor. A little slow-moving, but still worth watching, I guess. I've got "The Last Time I Saw Paris" on my Netflix queue. I'm trying to watch anything and everything Fitzgerald-related.

    This list makes me want to go back and re-read with new thoughts in my head (and read some for the first time)

    I never knew the story behind "Babylon Revisited". Thanks for the list. This has to be Fitzgerald's best!

    Sorry to be the curmudgeon, but I like only two on this list: ‘Babylon’ and ‘Winter Dreams.” The latter, especially, was a revelation to me.
