It’s a typo, old sport

So, wordies,  behold the trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s take on The Great Gatsbytypo and all:

What’s that, you say? A typo in the trailer? Yes, feast your eyes about, oh, 0:13 for a shot of Luhrmann’s folly:

See that? Where it says Zeigfield Zeigfeld instead of Ziegfield Ziegfeld? Only time will tell whether Luhrmann’s rendition will be worth seeing, but as far as this typo is concerned, there’s nothing great about that.


  1. Actually, the impresario’s name was Florenz ZiegFELD. Baz got the second half right.

  3. On a related note, there is a zebra in the swimming pool.

  4. I think you’re being kind calling it a “typo.” Looks more like a misspelling to me. But I am sometimes called a mean girl.
