"If he's first class, I'm traveling steerage."
"You can't build a life on hate, or a marriage on spite. Marriage is too important. Mine only lasted an hour, but... I know."

Warren Haggerty (Tracy) is the chief editor of a NY newspaper whom is looking to find a hot newstory on the very wealthy socialite Connie Allenbury (Loy). Connie is ...placing a five million dollar claim against the paper due to slander of a front page story that was not true about hert.
