Chris Matthew Sciabarra - 3/15/2005
Novelist and screenwriter Silliphant had written an unproduced adaptation of Rand's ATLAS SHRUGGED. Apparently, that script was to be the basis of a TV miniseries on NBC, which was canceled.
I don't know much else about the Silliphant-Rand relationship, except that Rand loved his screenplay for "In the Heat of the Night," and was very happy with his ATLAS adaptation.

I don't think I ever asked you about the connection between Silliphant and Rand. I believe they broke off their association before Nathan and Barbara were involved with her.
Was their relationship close? I've heard a few stories here and there, but nothing definite. I once asked Barbara Branden the above question when she was working on her biography. Don't think she had a clear answer, though.
Just a thought.
