John Barrymore stars as George Simon, a high-powered attorney who frantically juggles the scandals, crimes and crises that pass through the chrome-and-glass doors of his art deco office high in the Empire State Building. Balanced on an ethical tightrope, Simon engages in insider trading and bleeds funds from wealthy clients, while tending to the needs of the less fortunate New Yorkers who come from his own working-class background. A political enemy uncovers a past legal indiscretion and begins disbarment proceedings, causing Simon's socialite wife to seek comfort in the arms of another man. Stars Bebe Daniels, Doris Kenyon, Isabel Jewell, John Barrymore, Melvyn Douglas; Dir. Wm. Wyler.
