I recall one friend in college recommending that I read Atlas Shrugged, but I never did so; being seen toting around said hefty volume carried a certain connotation I chose not to be identified with while I was in school. Within the milieu of my upbringing, it was understood that Rand’s philosophical pretensions lacked seriousness and her absence from the literary curriculum seemed to reflect that her work did not show enough artistic merit to warrant much attention. But, given her stature in American politics, I had to wonder, what did I miss? I took to YouTube to remedy my ignorance, where you can watch the 1949 film version of The Fountainhead in its entirety.
