The rise, fall and resurgence of Hollywood producer Jonathan Shields (Kirk Douglas) is told in three flashbacks, from the point of view of screenwriter James Lee Bartlow (Dick Powell), actress Georgia Lorrison (Lana Turner) and director Fred Amiel (Barry Sullivan). Starting out in B-movies, Shields' ambition and ruthlessness ensure that he rises rapidly in Tinseltown, but he also makes several enemies along the way. The character of Shields is believed to be modelled on legendary Hollywood producer David O. Selznick.
