After his younger brother, Buddy (Tony Bill), shows up one day, ladies' man Alan Baker (Frank Sinatra) finds out Buddy has finally moved out of their father's home. Alan allows Buddy to stay with him, and even teaches him how to be a suave, hip Manhattanite. Buddy quickly adopts Alan's lifestyle, while their father, Harry (Lee J. Cobb), grows frustrated at the irresponsibility of his sons. When Alan starts to realize the shallowness of his life, he worries that it is too late to save Buddy.
Joey Evans (Frank Sinatra) is a philandering San Francisco-based singer with big dreams of starting his own night club, "Chez Joey," but chasing women keeps him even more occupied. Despite making a meaningful connection with lovely chorus girl Linda English (Kim Novak), it doesn't stop him from seducing the wealthy widow, and ex-burlesque dancer, Vera Simpson (Rita Hayworth), who he hopes will bankroll his club. Ultimately, Joey has to decide who -- and what -- he most wants in life.
