Rating: 4/5 -- Ótimo estudo de personagem que traz John Barrymore numa fascinante atuação repleta de energia e o diretor William Wyler seguro em uma produção intimista.

George Simon (John Barrymore) is a successful attorney, climbing from a Jewish ghetto to offices in the Empire State Building in Manhattan. After allowing one of his former clients to commit perjury to win a case, George realizes he could be disbarred. The scandal convinces his wife to run away to Europe with another man, leaving George shattered, desperate to find out who his true friends really are.
