The Fountainheads: Wright, Rand, the FBI and Hollywoodby Donald Leslie Johnson
Speculation abounds about the relationship between Frank Lloyd Wright and Ayn Rand. Was Wright the inspiration for the architect hero of Rand's The Fountainhead? What can be made of their collaboration on the book's failed 1944 movie adaptation, or gleaned from the 1949 Hollywood production? Wright was dubbed a communist sympathizer, and Rand was a Rand was friendly witness for the House Un-American Activities Committee; what effect did FBI harassment have on the movie and their lives?
