Last week, while passing through Sin City (aka Washington, DC), I had the opportunity to attend a screening of Atlas Shrugged, Part One at the Heritage Foundation.
As one whose life took a remarkable turn nearly two decades ago, in part due to Atlas Shrugged, waiting for a movie version of Ayn Rand’s novel to hit the big screen has been an effort at exercising endless patience. However, that patience has paid off with this movie.
Following the screening, and in light of all that is going on in Madison and elsewhere, Harmon Kaslow (one of the producers) stated that he would release one of the scenes in which the heroine, Dagny Taggart, confronts the union boss.
Below, courtesy of “The Strike” Productions, Inc., is a first-look at the scene Dagny confronts the union*.
While its April 15th theatrical release is limited for the moment, according to the producers, a blockbuster weekend will see it released in more theaters quickly. So, after you’ve made the mad dash to the post office to get your tax returns filed, grab your date and be sure to see Atlas Shrugged, Part One.
