Kentucky Ties in "The Great Gatsby"

If not in the movie, at least in the book, Kentucky figures prominently in “The Great Gatsby.”  Another movie based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald masterwork is released this weekend.  Rich Copley, who covers culture for the Lexington Herald Leader, dusted off his college copy, and discussed it with WEKU’s Charles Compton.
