In the film, Alfred Eaton (Newman) returns home after World War II, driven to be as successful as possible out of hatred toward his wealthy father (Leon Ames). He is unendingly ambitious: founding an aircraft construction company with his friend Lex (George Grizzard), marrying socialite Mary (Woodward) and leveraging a fortunate encounter with a powerful financier (Felix Aylmer) into a new career. But when he’s at the brink of attaining his professional goals, he is forced to choose between business success while married to the unfaithful Mary, or over with his true love, the much younger Natalie (Ina Balin).
