Based on the iconic novel by Ayn Rand, the 20th-century writer and controversial philosopher of ‘Objectivism,’ the film follows an individualistic architect named Howard Roark (Gary Cooper) who battles corrupt business interests and his love for a married woman. For Rand (who also wrote the screenplay), Roark represents struggle between individualism and collectivism, a man who would choose to destroy everything before compromising his personal and artistic vision. However, 1940s society, may not be ready for his modern architecture. The film co-stars Patricia Neal and Raymond Massey. Print courtesy of the Library of Congress. (35mm Presentation)
