The Fountainhead Review

This is the worst movie I have ever seen.

Having a novelist adapt their own work for the screen is a crapshoot to begin with. There are moments when it works quite well: Gone Girl and The Perks of Being a Wallflower come to mind as two examples of faithful and successful book-to-screen adaptations. 307 more words

Today We Live

Gary Cooper as Lt Richard Bogard in Today We Live (1933).  Gary made two more films with Howard Hawks.  Both were much more successful and rewarding.  26 more words
