Storyboard Text

  • Jay Gatsby
  • Nick Carraway
  • Tom Buchanan
  • Traits: Rich, no one knows his true past, has a fondness for Nick Quote: “Anyhow, he gives large parties,” said Jordan, changing the subject with an urbane distaste for the concrete. “And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.” Love Interest: Daisy
  • Mrs. Wilson
  • Traits: Reserves judgement Quote: "I am still a little afraid of missing something if I forget that, as my father snobbishly suggested, and I snobbishly repeat, a sense of the fundamental decencies is parceled out unequally at birth. Love Interest: Jordan Baker
  • Daisy
  • Traits: Polo and football player, Rich, Racist Quote: He nodded sagely. "And what's more, I love Daisy too. Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time." Love interest: Married to Daisy, but cheating on her with Mrs. Wilson.
  • Wolfsheim
  • Traits: Quote: Mrs. Wilson had changed her costume some time before, and was now attired in an elaborate afternoon dress, which gave out a continual rustle as she swept about the room. With the influence of the dress her personality had also undergone a change. Love Interest: Married to Mr. Wilson, but is cheating on him with Tom.
  • Traits: Presents herself as innocent, but is actually shallow, vain, and hurtful Quote: "She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw. He was astounded, [...] and he looked at Gatsby, and then back at Daisy as if he had just recognized her as some one he knew a long time ago." Love Interest: Married to Tom, but cheating on him with Gatsby
  • Traits: Seems shady, tries to deal Nick into illicit acts Quote: “Meyer Wolfsheim? No, he’s a gambler.” Gatsby hesitated, then added coolly: “He’s the man who fixed the World’s Series back in 1919.” Manipulation: Wolfsheim used Gatsby for his own gain through the "Drug Stores", the bootlegging, and the grain alcohol stores."
