That’s No Lady…


No. It’s Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald promoting The Evil Eye at Princeton’s Triangle Club in 1916.

The future author of The Great Gatsby had written the lyrics for the bawdy comedy revue and was later described by The Times as ‘the most beautiful girl in the show’

Here he is, as himself, with his wife Zelda.

        Bit of an awkward comment there if you know anything about poor old Zelda’s life.

        She had a crummy old time of it as Fitzgerald’s wife. He was controlling and jealous and had her committed to a series of horrendous clinics and hospitals .

        And then, what with the times that were in it, Fitzgerald biographers spent decades painting her as – yeah – a battle axe and worse.
