Robert Wagner is Bud Corliss, a handsome college student who has engineered a relationship with Dorothy Kingship, daughter of a wealthy mine owner. Dorothy's unexpected pregnancy complicates matters; while she would find elopement (and the disinheritance that would accompany) acceptable, it defeats Bud's entire purpose of marrying into wealth. He stages Dorothy's "suicide" and begins romancing the elder daughter, Ellen. Adaptation of Ira Levin's novel is Gerd Oswald's first and best picture.
