1949 | 1h 54m | Drama
A visionary architect struggles to see his work built without compromise
Vidor’s characteristically forthright film of Ayn Rand’s novel about an uncompromising, unorthodox, unashamedly arrogant architect fighting for his ideals is notable both for its questionable individualist philosophy and for how it looks. Art director Edward Carrere designed the determinedly modernist architecture, while Vidor and cameraman Robert Burks make emphatic play with the phallic symbolism. Max Steiner’s Romantic score adds to the furore.
