Eye Doc

This eye doctor is in Sagamore.  Every time I pass this sign, I think of the eyes in the Dr. T.J. Eckleburg sign, from The Great Gatsby, which is one of my fave books.  I can't help but wonder if Dr. Bodrie did it on purpose, and I'd love to ask him.

This is how the eyes were portrayed in the 1974 version of "The Great Gatsby". (how young was Sam Waterson?!)  
See what I mean?

  6. Some of my Facebook friends who live nearby know this doctor and are going to try and remember to ask him if he did his sign was influenced by Gatsby!

  10. I think I like the version with Robert Redford best but am a big fan of Sam Waterston ever since I saw him in 'The Killing Fields'.
