Aircraft tycoon Grant Matthews (Spencer Tracy) is goaded into running for president by his politically ambitious longtime girlfriend, newspaper publisher Kay Thorndyke (Angela Lansbury).

But when the idealistic Mary learns of Kay’s behind-the-scenes role, it throws the entire campaign into turmoil.
