Synopsis / Plot
An egotistical producer, Jonathan Shields (Douglas), determined to prove himself the finest filmmaker of all, gladly steps all over those who helped him when he was starting out. Told from the perspective of three victims -- an actress (Turner), a writer (Powell), and a director (Sullivan) -- this picture captured five Oscars and also includes what many believe is Turner's finest performance ever.
