Atlas Shrugged II Director's Mother, Jean Stapleton, Passes Away

Jean Stapleton, mother of Atlas Shrugged Part II Director, John Putch, died Friday at the age of 90.

“Our hearts are with John. His mother was an inspiration to all of us.“ said Atlas Shrugged Producer Harmon Kaslow.

Although Jean was 48 when she became famous as Edith Bunker in "All in the Family," by the time that landmark sitcom premiered in 1971, she had been already acting for 30 years on the stage, in movies and on television.

The son of renowned actress Jean Stapleton and the late producer/director William H. Putch, John Putch is often referred to as an independent film maverick.  One of his first indie efforts, "Valerie Flake," landed him at the '99 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

20th Century Fox to Bring Atlas Shrugged Part 2 to DVD and Blu-Ray 2013

Atlas Distribution Company signs with 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

(Hollywood, CA) – October 19, 2012 – Atlas Distribution Company announced today it has signed a distribution deal with Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation for the Spring 2013 release of ATLAS SHRUGGED: PART 2 on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and Video on Demand.

ATLAS SHRUGGED PART II is set in a near future dystopian USA with a global economy on the brink of collapse - unemployment at 24% and gas at $42 per gallon - and brilliant creators, from artists to industrialists, continuing to mysteriously disappear at the hands of the unknown.

“With Atlas Shrugged Part 2 now playing in theaters all across the country, we wanted to give Fox a head start in creating and marketing the DVD for release in Spring 2013. Fox has been a great partner and we’re looking forward to working with them again.” stated Producer Harmon Kaslow.

Ayn Rand’s 1,100 page novel is being distributed by Atlas Distribution Company as a trilogy following the three part structure outlined in the bestselling book. Atlas Shrugged Part 1 is currently available on DVD, and Atlas Shrugged Part 2 hit more than 1,000 theaters on October 12th, 2012.

Theaters and showtimes for Part 2 can be found at the movie’s official website:

For the deal, David Bixler and Harris Kane represented Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, and John Aglialoro, Harmon Kaslow and Roger Arar represented Atlas Distribution Company. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation also handled the DVD distribution for Atlas Shrugged Part 1.

About Atlas Distribution Company
Atlas Distribution Company was formed by John Aglialoro as a motion picture studio to produce and distribute films including those based on Ayn Rand’s epic novel, Atlas Shrugged. For more information, visit

Good Ideas Are Not For Everyone

Good Ideas Are Not For Everyone
By John Aglialoro

In three weeks we will be voting in, what many consider, the most important election of our lifetime, the 2012 Presidential election. If you’re reading this article, chances are you’ve already made up your mind who you’ll be voting for. Good. But, what about your friends and family who haven’t? Are you going to take the time to talk to them about their vote?

I would suggest you do - just not all of them.

When Mitt Romney chose Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, the media exploded in unison with critical stories of the Wisconsin representative’s appreciation of Ayn Rand - the author of, according to a 1991 survey done by the Library of Congress, one of the most influential books ever written, Atlas Shrugged.

A sample of the detractors’ criticisms...

What made her books controversial is … an extremist vision of America that celebrated greed and selfishness...” - Gary Weiss, CNN

Really? Well... that just sounds horrible. I too would take issue with this author. The thing is, I can’t figure out which book he’s referring to - and I’ve read most everything Ayn Rand wrote.

This is the problem with most, if not all, of the Left’s arguments. Their arguments are rarely anchored in reality, or on what they’ve read themselves, or on any type of empirical evidence or data. Their arguments are founded primarily on assumption and their emotional response to those assumptions.

So, how do we combat an emotional response to a false premise egged on by the refusal to think for oneself critically? Ayn Rand once said, “Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Leave them alone.

Was Ayn Rand suggesting that we simply remove ourselves from the discussion entirely? No. What Ayn Rand was suggesting is that we don’t waste our time trying to convince the inconvincible, e.g., Gary Weiss is not interested in having a rational discussion - he’s looking to enforce a position. There is no conversation to be had.

There’s a wonderful quote from Atlas Shrugged: “When I disagree with a rational man, I let reality be our final arbiter; if I am right, he will learn; if I am wrong, I will; one of us will win, but both will profit.” This is where our fight is - the mind of the rational man and rational woman.

You have friends, family, and co-workers, who will not listen to reason and will be voting November 6th. Identify them but do not waste your time. You will not influence them. Who we must focus on however are those individuals that, although tending to lean on their emotions, are ready and willing to engage in serious rational discourse. They are the undecided, the concerned, the curious and they understand that their vote counts. They want to understand the issues and they want to make the right decision.

Find the time to take them to lunch. Invite them to dinner. Take them to a movie (Atlas Shrugged Part 2!). Talk to them.

Talk to them about the fact that there are now 47 million American citizens on food stamps - more than a 60% increase in beneficiaries in the past three and a half years. Talk to them about the fact that only 53% of Americans pay income tax. Talk to them about the facts and only the facts.  

Ask them what their priorities are in life. Ask them what their major concerns are. Ask them what they think the solutions are. Chances are, they are already very close to finding the answers themselves. All that may be required at this point, is the gentle hand of clarity reinforced by some succinct elucidation.

Here is the most important thing to remember: good ideas are not for everyone. They’re only for those actually interested in ideas to begin with.

Recently, my producing partner Harmon Kaslow was asked whom Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged would appeal to:

"While Ayn Rand’s heroes speak to the individual in all of us, they do not speak for everyone. Ayn Rand’s heroes are men and women from all walks of life - sculptors, musicians, plumbers, steel workers, architects, industrialists - if you enjoy your work and do it well, if you constantly strive to be better, if you work hard every day, you will LOVE Atlas.
“However, if you feel a sense of entitlement - as in the government owes you something - simply because you exist, Atlas [Shrugged] is not a story for you. You are whom we are warning against."

There are those that want to hear our ideas and those that don’t want to hear any ideas. Know the difference and you might just have a shot at making a difference.

The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it.” - Ayn Rand.

John Aglialoro is the Producer of Atlas Shrugged Part 1 and Atlas Shrugged Part 2.
