Interview with John Aglialoro, producer of Atlas Shrugged, Part 1

In an interview with Atlas Shrugged, Part 1 Producer John Aglialoro, Amanda Carey of The Daily Caller asked ten questions. My personal favorite, having seen the film and met Nathaniel Brandon and Barbara Brandon at the screening, was this one:

10. What do you think Ayn Rand would think of the film?
I’ve pondered that question a long time and I’ve been waiting for many, many years to go and visit her grave and say, ‘Well we did it.’ I never met her and I certainly would not have the answer. But I was very fortunate last week when I did see Barbara’s reaction because she knew [Rand] for so long and even at the end she knew her so well. And I said, ‘Barbara, what would Ayn have thought?’ And she hesitated for the first couple seconds or so and then she said, ‘I think she would’ve loved it.’ So I can’t give you that answer but Barbara can.

As I said in a previous post, the movie exceeded my expectations.
