Robinson, the owner of a Chicago meat packing company, is married to self-centered social climber Tobin. Robinson meets and falls in love with Francis, but his wife won't give him a divorce. He continues his affair with Francis secretly, and she begins to make big steps in her singing

career. Robinson becomes the head of a meat packing trust that sends preserved beef to American troops fighting in Cuba. When Theodore Roosevelt becomes president, Robinson is indicted but then cleared of all charges. Francis' career takes off, and Robinson tries to duplicate her success. He fails

miserably, and, with his company going bankrupt, he leaves for Greece. When Francis finds this out, she takes a boat to be with him. This was the film in which Robinson began to earn a reputation of being tough on writers, insisting they more sharply define characters, especially his own. He

bullied Kenyon and Sutherland into tightening his dialog while director Green stood mutely by.
