* {{Badass}}: Howard Roark will never back down. Never. True to this trait, he [[spoiler: blows up what used to be his building because a bunch of Toohey's architect goons screwed with it]]. THEN, he [[spoiler: just stands there, looking at it]]. He doesn't even care that [[spoiler: he would obviously be caught, arrested, and put in jail]]! And it turns out he freaking [[spoiler: planned it that way in the first place, anyway]]! Plus, so many his lines are just SO badass.

Francon.

* ArtistDisillusionment: Ayn Rand didn't like the movie, even though the screenplay was almost completely done by her.



* ExecutiveMeddling: Largely {{subverted|Trope}}.



* RomanceOnTheSet
