A famous star, writer, and director are called to the studio by executive Harry Pebbel (Walter Pidgeon) so he can try to convince them to make another movie with exiled producer Jonathan Shields (Kirk Douglas). In flashbacks, we learn that Shields and director Fred Amiel (Barry Sullivan) were fast friends learning the business working on b-pictures, until Jonathan filched Fred's script and concept and leapt into A production without him. Georgia Lorrison (Lana Turner), the daughter of an earlier screen great, was a boozing mess until Jonathan turned her into a star, helping her through her problems by feigning a love relationship - until the film was in the can. And writer James Lee Bartlow (Dick Powell) was wooed from a University in the South to the Hollywood bigtime, only to lose his wife Rosemary (Gloria Grahame) to the temptations of tinsel town. Will they turn their backs on the most hated man in Hollywood, or acknowledge their debt to him?
