Summary
"A story of a man's search for the illegitimate son he had abandoned 20 years previously. ... After 20 years, Cagney, now a selfmade big wheel in steel, casts off business affairs to look for the son he had denied when young. The search brings him to Miss Stanwyck's [adoption home] and what looks like a blind alley when she refuses to disclose the adopting parents. While she fights him successfully in court, the association with her and her charges, particularly Miss Keim [playing a teenager awaiting the birth of a child], plus a meeting with his son now on the very edge of manhood, convinces Cagney of the futility of trying to intrude"--Variety review, July 25, 1956
