"A provocative, absorbing visualization of Ayn Rand's powerful book, The Fountainhead follows the story of a talented architect (Gary Cooper) forced to compromise his art for the woman he loves (Patricia Neal). As the architect is drawn deeper into the world of sycophants and cheats who surround his lover, he becomes more and more emotionally isolated and finally blows up his own housing project--with disatrous results. Masterfully directed by King Vidor, The Fountainhead is compelling drama at its best. Highlighted by an all-star cast including Gary Cooper, Patricia Neal and Raymond Massey, it is a story that explodes on the screen as both top-notch entertainment and food for thought. A searing indictment of the compelling question: what is more important, the individual or society at large?"--Slipcase
