I don't want to turns this into a pro vs anti Rand thing, but the book seems to be far more notable than the film (which is mostly forgotten). I haven't actually actually watched it yet (or read any of Rand's books) and perhaps Larry will have some persuasive reasoning, but right now it's as baffling a nomination as Cry Uncle! or Exorcist 3 (the latter of which I enjoyed, but not enough to pick it over the original).

I've intended to see this movie for years, and now I have another reason. Plus I love Patricia Neal.
