- Synopsis / Plot
- The rise of the popular Nevada city is chronicled in this epic drama that begins when Reno was a tiny silver-mining town and ends when it becomes a divorce center and garishly lit gambling town. The film also follows the exploits of a young attorney who comes to town to build a thriving divorce practice. He becomes so involved in his work, that he ignores his own loving wife who leaves him. As a result, the city fathers get on his case about his virtue. The lawyer is subsequently disbarred; he then opens a gambling casino. Years pass and his estranged daughter comes to Reno for a quickie divorce. Father and daughter do not recognize each other as he tries to talk her out of the divorce. When she realizes who he is, she leaves Reno.
