When Goffredo Alessandrini and his young associate director, Anton Majano decided too make a drama of epic proportions out of We The Living, they had a problem. They couldn't buy the rights as a war was going on, and they stole it. The movie making was tough and it was cut into two. The Government ordered to destroy the negatives, but they saved it by sending wrong negatives. Ayn Rand's legal representatives Holzer's rediscovered the movie which was in the possession of two Roman's. The movie was excellently made and was a box office success.

Published on : Thursday, July 22, 2010

Randed for life
Published on : Thursday, June 3, 2010
My favorite Ayn Rand stories are how she named herself, and how she presented her philosophy standing on one foot. Ayn Rand believers find it hard to realize that some people outgrew it, and Ayn rand sceptics find it hard to accept how so many are swayed.once you’ve been Ayn Randed, the scar is permanent, writes Nilanjana S Roy in Business Standard.
