King Vidor’s 1949 adaptation of Ayn Rand’s ridiculous novel about an ambitious, obnoxiously individualistic architect is high camp absurdity, which is fitting because of how influential Rand’s politics are among the most selfish of the current Republican leaders. Gary Cooper is Howard Roark, in arguably his worst performance, and the gorgeous Patricia Neal is his love interest. At one point, he literally sweeps her off her feet. A good movie to mock, and it will help you mock Paul Ryan, Rand’s biggest fan, with more authority.
