Judging a Book by it's Cover: Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and published in 1925.  Since then it's become a classic and has been republished countless times, often with different cover art.

The original cover art is #1.  According to Wikipedia, the cover was completed before the novel and the Fitzgerald loved it so much that he wrote it into the novel. (remember the billboard next to the garage?) 

I think I'm most drawn to cover #4.  How about you?  If you'd never heard of the book before, which one do you think you'd pick up?  How influential is cover art for you when choosing a book?
