Are we sure Manton isn't Wolfe? Here's Manton's, I mean Wolfe's interpretation: "I'll never forgive the 1974 movie version of The Great Gatsby, which was the Fitzgerald novel as reinterpreted by the garment industry. Throughout the picture Robert Redford wore white suits. They fitted so badly that every time he turned a corner there was an eighty-microsecond lag before they joined him. Nevertheless, Gatsby, followed as it was nearly four years later by Saturday Night Fever, ruined one of the main joys of my life: wearing white suits. Pretty soon you saw white suits everywhere. They came crawling out of every shopping mall disco boutique in America on the backs of the Gold Chains in the Chest Hair set."
