Atlas Shrugged Newsletter: 09.15.16

Atlas Shrugged Newsletter: 09.15.16

"When robbery is done in open daylight by sanction of the law, as it is done today, then any act of honor or restitution has to be hidden underground." - Ragnar Danneskjöld

Weigh in on the New Atlas Shrugged Movie

Ayn Rand's masterpiece Atlas Shrugged is just under 1200 pages. And, no matter how hard we try, there is simply no way to squeeze it all into a single movie verbatim.
Now that preliminary work has begun on the new Atlas Shrugged movie, there are some tough decisions to be made before things can really get underway. One of which is, what storylines from the book would be considered not critical to Ayn Rand's message as a whole?
So, you tell us, what scenes can be left out and still result in a movie that does Rand's message justice?

Be a part of the process and share your opinion in Galt's Gulch Online now.

A Letter from Ayn Rand

In 1934, a very young Ayn Rand wrote to her soon-to-be agent, Jean Wick, regarding her new book, We The Living.
Decades from crafting her magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged, the letter reveals a stage in Rand's development seldom seen...
"I certainly would not go so far as to demand the book [We the Living] be published exactly as it is or not at all."

Read the full letter in Galt's Gulch.

Atlas Shrugged Newsletter: 09.01.16

Atlas Shrugged Newsletter: 09.01.16

"Atlas Shrugged is not a prophecy of our unavoidable destruction, but a manifesto of our power to avoid it, if we choose to change our course." - Ayn Rand

Celebrate Sept. 2nd with a Piece of Atlas Shrugged History

"A white rectangle hung over the city, imparting the date to the men in the streets below. In the rusty light of this evening’s sunset, the rectangle said: September 2." - Atlas Shrugged

In 1957, one of the most controversial novels ever written was published.
The author was a young Russian immigrant, and the book, her epic masterpiece, was Atlas Shrugged.
59 years later, the book has sold millions of copies and inspired countless individuals.
In 1992, one of those so inspired shook hands on a million dollar deal that would give him the rights to make Atlas Shrugged into a movie.
That individual was John Aglialoro. And, while he had no way of knowing it at the time, he had just taken on one of his greatest challenges.

Over the next 18 years, John would face many ups and downs in his attempt to bring his vision of Atlas to the silver screen. (Read about the journey in Joan Carter's The History of the Atlas Shrugged Movie Trilogy.)
In June of 2010, John finally found a hero that would get the film production of Atlas Shruggedunderway, Harmon Kaslow.
Four years and 3 films later, on September 12th 2014, the final part of the trilogy, Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt? was released in theaters.
After 22 years and $50 million of his own money, John Aglialoro's dream was realized.
In celebration of September 2nd, Atlas Shrugged Day, and all the men and women who refuse to give up and back down, we're very proud to release this signed Limited Edition Atlas Shrugged Trilogy Filmcell featuring actual film reel clips and official poster artwork from each of the three films.
