Writer Petitions to Have Hollywood Street Named After F. Scott Fitzgerald
The image of jazz-age writer F. Scott Fitzgerald that endures is very much entwined with New York City, where he wrote and published his first book and enjoyed his first success. The image of he and his wife Zelda jumping into the fountain in front of the Plaza Hotel during a night of partying is, after all, based on fact. But Fitzgerald spent the last, quieter (post-Zelda) part of his life living and working in Hollywood working on screenplays and stories and on his last unfinished novel, The Last Tycoon. To honor Fitzgerald and his years in Hollywood, Rodger Jacobs is petitioning the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to name a street after him on the 65th anniversary of his death. Read the petition here.
