Clark Gable as "Russell "Russ" Ward"
Out of hit ideas and seemingly in the twilight of his career, Broadway producer Russ Ward (Clark Gable) decides to give up the game. But when Russ lays off his nubile secretary, Ellie Brown (Carroll Baker), she shocks him with a declaration of love. Inspired, Ward commands playwright MacDonald (Lee J. Cobb) to rewrite his latest show as a May-December romance starring Brown herself. Ward struggles to make a comeback as his ex-wife, Kathryn (Lilli Palmer), plots to end his new relationship.
