A building has integrity, just like a man
A man's self is his spirit.
A tall, gaunt man who worked a drill.
And just as seldom
And that you're wrong in your contempt for me.
And that's why I hoped I'd never meet anyone like you
Because I couldn't stand it any longer
But just a word of recommendation from you
Can you do that to Howard Roark? No?
Can't you give in just once? After all, you have to live
Come in
Cortlandt Homes.
Did Mrs. Wynand choose me for the job?
Did you believe I'd agree like Peter? Did you expect to win me by your usual methods?
Did you know Guy Francon made me his partner last week?
Do you happen to remember why I resigned from the Banner?
Don't apologize for your past. It isn't necessary.
Don't hold them against me, the things I've built.
From both of us.
Has man any right to exist if he refuses to serve society?
Have you seen drawings of the Enright House?
Haven't you answered your own question?
His work, not those who used it...
Howard Roark.
I believe you understand me, gentlemen.
I came to tell you this..
I could've expected anything on my return except to see you coming here to meet me
I give the public what it wants, including your column, Mr. Toohey
I grant you that I'm behaving abominably
I guarantee it.
I might if you offer me enough
I set my own standards.
I was waiting for you to come.
I will design Cortlandt. You'll put your name on it.
I wish to undertake the construction of the Wynand building at once.
I won't give it up. I'll take my first vacation.
I won't stop you
I won't try to guess your motive..
I wouldn't be so frightened if I could understand. What have I done?
I'd enjoy it.
I'll fight for you if it takes everything I own.
I'll pay whatever...
I'm honest enough to warn you, you shouldn't be
I've come to beg you as I did in school to design it for me
If I've been guilty in my life, this house will vindicate me
If you refuse, I will see to it that you never build again.
Incidentally, since it is of no importance to you, I love you
Is there any kind of payment I can offer you?
It is I who have done it
It is their proper function.
It was their paper, not mine.
It'll be all right, Gail. It will be all right.
It's an outrage against art and a threat to public safety. It might collapse any moment
It's easy
It's incredible. I believe you're jealous.
It's stunning, perfectly stunning, but I wouldn't want to live in a house like this.
Just passing by. Thought I'd drop in. I haven't seen you for such a long time
More of it. Look. Letters to the editor.
My ideas are my property.
My... My heir, eh? And look at it
No one else would dare say that to me.
No, Mr. Roark, there is too much talk and public resentment against you
No. You have the wrong number
No. You shouldn't deal with me.
Nor to any part of my energy, nor to any achievement of mine.
Nothing and no one
Now, don't protest, Howard. You can pay me back anytime
Now, here's what I'll offer you
Now, why did you come here? What do you want?
Of course, I'm everybody's friend. I'm the friend of humanity.
On what condition?
Perhaps one of the greatest
Please accept my resignation from the Banner.
Thank you for the house you designed for us. It's one of your most beautiful.
Thank you. You're making it easier for me
That's the payment I demand for my work
The creator produces. The parasite loots.
The creator's concern is the conquest of nature.
The last achievement of man on earth...
The man who refuses to submit and to serve..
The only thing I worship, and I've seen so little of it in life...
Then don't ask me why I want to destroy him.
Then shut up and don't ever let me hear any architectural suggestions.
They hate you for your integrity
Thousands of years ago the first man discovered how to make fire.
To prosper, not to starve.
We are approaching a world in which I cannot permit myself to live.
What do you think of this building? I'm taking a poll of the guests...
What is it?
What is Mr. Roark to you?
Whatever your reason, I shall accept it
When you grow older, you'll see that's the only way to succeed.
Why did you accept this commission? Don't you hate me?
Why did you have to come to me?
Why do you always stare at me?
Why, Miss Francon
Will you have dinner with me this evening? We'll discuss the commission.
Without an announcement?
Yes, Miss Francon
Yes, Miss Francon.
You can't hope to survive unless you learn how to compromise
You do have courage, don't you?
You helped me with my projects in school.
You need it
You ought to feel contempt for me if you've seen the kind of buildings I put up.
You still wish me to marry you?
You will have full charge and complete authority.
You'd never surrender to anyone, but you don't hate me any longer
You're willing to destroy it to amuse the mob..
You've always wanted to escape from the world
Because everybody's accepted them. I haven't
Comfortable and sloppy and, well, homey. No, one couldn't
Dominique? No, I'm not going to help you.
Go on. Cortlandt is my last chance
I couldn't help it. I suppose not
I read that in your column yesterday
If you want me to find him for you... No
No. But it's a humanitarian project
No. Thank you, Howard.
That's not going very far. It's all right for you to make cracks
What? That we are alike, you and I.
Why are you afraid? I know what they'll do to you
Yes. I promised our answer today, Mr. Roark..
Yes. It's yours
Yes. Why don't you laugh at me now? You won
You knew I never would. Yes
You shouldn't mind talking to me
You'll win. I have.
You're honest, aren't you? Thank you.
...against the Enright House
...and the gratitude and I'll take that..
...and when you agree to it, we can sign the contract
...and you thought you were a practical man.
...because he and you will need each other.
...but by Monday we'll know.
...but I broke it. What do you mean?
...but I'd know your work anywhere.
...but I'm going to now.
...but not the man to originate the idea. any group, board, council, or committee.. each man subordinating himself to the standards of the majority
...came from attempts to force men into a herd of brainless, soulless robots.
...except the Banner.
...for compliments or for pity. Sit down
...has come from the independent work of some independent mind.
...I'll give you a greater satisfaction a city billboard.
...of the Security Bank of Manhattan has chosen you as the architect for our building determine the guilt or innocence of the accused.
...we wouldn't alter your plans in any way.
...which are the glory of mankind.
...which nobody can give a man except himself
...who has destroyed Cortlandt Homes for his own selfish motive.
...will you ever withdraw it? must be the kind of man who can get things done
