Eager to land a journalistic position, Adam White goes to work as an advice-giving newspaper columnist. His editor, Shrike, takes pleasure in browbeating his alcoholic wife Florence for her past adultery, and assigning his employees journalistic jobs for which they have little aptitude or interest. Shrike goads Adam into meeting one of his correspondents, Fay Doyle, a teary, self-pitying woman who makes a play for him. Adam is torn between his loyalty to the newspaper and his girl Justy.

A very fragile Montgomery Clift (the first film after his car accident) plays an aspiring newspaper writer. He ends up working for a very cynical Robert Ryan, and ends up getting involved with a very desperate Maureen Stapleton. Ryan puts him to work writing an advice column, & Clift ends up getting too emotionally involved. A good performance by Clift, but Ryan is the scene-stealer, in part because it seems he was given the best lines. A sub-par performance by Myrna Loy. Also Jackie Coogan.
