The Fountainhead

USA 1949. Dir King Vidor. With Gary Cooper, Raymond Massey, Patricia Neal, Kent Smith. 112min. U

Based on Ayn Rand’s 1943 novel expounding her “individualism” philosophy, The Fountainhead uses

architecture as a stage for the struggle between modernity and tradition, with the ambition of

humankind winning over doubt and convention. Howard Roark is an idealistic architect who

struggles in obscurity rather than compromise his artistic and personal vision. The film follows his

battle to practise modern architecture despite an establishment focused on the worship of tradition.
