Plot Summary
Sick of his job driving a truck in Kentucky, the ambitious Youngblood Hawke (James Franciscus) ventures to New York City to make it as a novelist. There he meets Jeanne Green (Suzanne Pleshette), an editor who falls in love with him as she helps launch his career. His first novel gets a moderate reception, but his second becomes a sensation. Hawke navigates his way through New York's vicious literary circles and ignores Jeanne for more fashionable company, which sets him on the path to tragedy.
