The Taggart Boardroom

Atlas Shrugged enthusiasts will remember that Nathaniel Taggart founded Taggart Transcontinental and set up the company’s headquarters in New York. In the upcoming movie version of Atlas Shrugged (Part 1), the scene of the boardroom is portrayed with the set pictured to the left. I didn’t see this particular set, but it is the scene of many hard fought battles, mostly between Dagny Taggart and her brother, Jim, and his cronies from Washington. The company’s motto, “From Ocean to Ocean,” signifies the ambitions of a younger Nathaniel Taggart, whose entrepreneurial mind and spirit have seemingly been lost in his progeny, with the notable exception of Dagny.
I am so looking forward to this movie.
