1 hr. 41 min.
Burdened by a family secret, Adam White (Montgomery Clift) lands a job as a newspaper advice columnist. Little does he realize that it's all part of a nasty desire by cynical editor William Shrike (Robert Ryan) to crush the souls of his underlings. Adam feels his readers' pain, and eventually he takes an assignment to meet with Faye Doyle (Maureen Stapleton), who is exasperated by her crippled husband. When Faye tries to seduce Adam, he must choose between his job and his girl (Dolores Hart).
