As some of you may know, Ayn Rand, like many famous novelists, had a period when she "went Hollywood." True, she was no Faulkner or Fitzgerald, but in 1943, Rand sold the rights for The Fountainhead to Warner Brothers, and wrote the screenplay. She was then hired by top producer Hall Wallis.
Her screenplays included the Oscar-nominated Love Letters and You Came Along. After the war she joined the anti-Communist movement in Hollywood and appeared as a friendly witness before Congress in testifying about the Red influence there.
