Who is Salt? Nah. Who is John Galt?

July 4th, 2010

Have you seen the advertisements for the new Angelina Jolie movie, Salt? The tagline is “Who is Salt?”

Jolie is an Ayn Rand fan. She once said:

“I just think [Ayn Rand] has a very interesting philosophy…You reevaluate your own life and what’s important to you.”

In fact, I heard some rumors that Jolie wanted to play Dagny Taggart in a film version of Atlas Shrugged.

So I wonder… just wonder… if “Who is Salt?” is in some ways a play on “Who is John Galt.” It rhymes! (as does Oy Gevalt! h/t SF).
