Who is John Galt? - From the Christian Science Monitor: "'Atlas Shrugged' - Fifty years later" - "When Ayn Rand finished writing "Atlas Shrugged" 50 years ago this month, she set off an intellectual shock wave that is still felt today. It's credited for helping to halt the communist tide and ushering in the currents of capitalism. Many readers say it transformed their lives. A 1991 poll rated it the second-most influential book (after the Bible) for Americans." (HT: Maggie's Farm)

So when is the damn movie coming out?

Really. I have read that Rand's intellectual heir is extremely picky and some have offered to produce the film but Peikoff keeps saying no. I predict that Atlas Shrugged would be the top grossing film of all time. But honestly, it is too big a story for a movie. More likely a mini-series.
