The Fountainhead
by King Vidor

Based on the famous novel, The Fountainhead, by philosopher Ayn Rand, this classic feature film, made in Hollywood, is the story of heroic architect Howard Roark. An uncompromising idealist, Roark believes he can balance his values with the needs of society. His mentor disagrees and encourages him to compromise his integrity rather than suffer for his artistic goals. The novel was adapted for the film almost exactly as Ayn Rand prescribed — she was the screen writer for this film version of her novel. The film is actually a dramatization of Ayn Rand’s controversial objectivist philosophy that promotes individual rights. It’s a beautifully made black-and-white film noir from 1949.
