The Fountainhead (King Vidor, 1949) is considered by many people to be the ultimate architecture film. Based on the 1943 novel by Ayn Rand, the film features Gary Cooper as Howard Roark, an architect convinced of his own genius. Dominique (Patricia Neal) falls for him and his buildings. The film is often the subject of debate on account of Rand’s crypto-fascist ideas and the phallic symbolism of the imagery. Even so, The Fountainhead is an interesting project because of its starring cast, music, camera work and direction. And because of the universal themes of building and urban development that are still as strong today as they were when the film was made, almost 70 years ago.
