One of Barrymore's best. He stars as Jewish lawyer George Simon, who has climbed to the top of his profession in New York from a poverty-stricken past that continues to haunt him. His constant struggles in the elitist law community are taking their toll and his personal life is no better when George discovers that his gentile wife Cora (Kenyon) has been unfaithful. But his secretary Regina (Daniels), who has always loved him, remains loyal. Rice adapted from his own play. Director Wyler dumped the musical score except for what's heard over the opening and closing credits.
