The Fountainhead (1949) From the novel and screenplay adaptation by Ayn Rand, King Vidor directs Gary Cooper, as the ruthless architect Howard Roark [modeled on Frank Lloyd Wright] and Patricia O’Neal as the devoted socialite Dominique Francon in this allegory celebrating unbridled capitalism in the struggle between individualism and collectivism. During the final courtroom sequence, Cooper delivers an impassioned speech that embodies Ayn Rand’s philosophy. Standing atop the tallest building in the city, Cooper watches as Patricia O’Neal ascends on a scaffold to join him in a visual homage to futurism.
