Plot Summary
Dr. Sam Abelman (Paul Muni) is a Jewish doctor contentedly spending his autumn years serving his own Brooklyn neighborhood. But when his nephew, would-be journalist Myron (Joby Baker), writes an article about him, it draws the attention of a producer, Woodrow Thrasher (David Wayne), who believes Abelman a good candidate for a TV show. The doctor, however, is suspicious of the whole enterprise, thinking both Myron and Thrasher are simply out to make a fast buck.
