On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing. In so doing, he incurs the wrath of local police chief Hank Quinlan, a corrupt, bullying behemoth with a perfect arrest record.

Determined to get Vargas out of his hair, Quinlan makes a deal with local crime boss Uncle Joe Grandi to frame Susan on a drug rap.

The fountainhead by Turner Home Entertainment (Firm) ( Visual )

"Howard Roark stands alone. Rather than kowtow to bosses, the idealistic architect takes a job busting quarry rocks. Rather than permit the construction of a drastically altered housing project he designed, he blasts the site to kingdom come. And when broutht to trial, he accepts no defence but his own. The Fountainhead, adapted by Ayn Rand from her 1943 novel, brings to the screen all the bigger-than life characters who've thrilled readers and sparked debate for nearly 50 years. Patricia Neal as moody Dominique, Raymond Massey as power-mad publisher Gail Wynant, Kent Smith as weak-willed Peter Keating and Robert Douglas as vicious critic Ellsworth Toohey are all here... and destined to collide with the unbendable steel that is Roark, played by Gary Cooper in a superb lead performance. "Build it as a monument to your spirit" is how Roark's towering masterwork is mommissioned late in the film. Similarly, The Fountainhead is a towering tribute to everyone willing to stand by what's right, no matter what the cost" -- Container
