This storyboard does not have a description.
Nick Carraway is very morose as he tries to find people to invite to Gatsby's funeral. It is a sad time, as his one friend finds every reason not to come.
"Next morning I sent the butler to New York with a letter to Wolfsheim, which asked for information and urged him to come out on the next train. That request seemed superfluous when I wrote it. I was sure he'd start when he saw the newspapers, just as I was sure a there'd be a wire from Daisy before noon—but neither a wire nor Mr. Wolfsheim arrived; no one arrived except more police and photographers and newspaper men. When the butler brought back Wolfsheim's answer I began to have a feeling of defiance, of scornful solidarity between Gatsby and me against them all. "(9.20)
Nick tries to invite dozens of Gatby's "friends" to the funeral. All of these people either didn't come, or seemingly disappeared.
The only person who knew him and wasn't a servant was Henry Gatz, his dad. He was very sad, and described how brilliant his son was.
There was a prodigious amount of reporters at the funeral. They had wild and untrue stories about what happened.
Being successful doesn't mean you are happy, and this was found out by Nick. Gatsby was alone and unhappy, even with his success.
