movie review-The Fountainhead.

“The Fountainhead” stars Gary Cooper as creative genius Howard Roark in this B&W masterpiece tale of individualism v collectivism and the struggle for personal integrity. Also stars Jane Wyman. Directed by King Vidor. Heres another movie where I had read the book first. The book is better of course but the movie does not lose the fundamental ideas of the book. The finale is a trial where Roark defends his own achievements and in so doing defends the noble achievements of mankind’s best individuals throughout history. You could call The Fountainhead, an anthem, or salute, to achievers.
