Hollywood producer Jonathan Shields betrays three in his rise to the top: Barry Sullivan as director Fred Amiel; Lana Turner as actress Georgia Lorrison; and Dick Powell as screenwriter James Lee Barlow. Parallel stories told in flashbacks; now, Shields would like the three of them to work with him on a new project. It is no secret that the model for Shields is David O. Selznick.
