Former vaudeville headliner Rudolph Bitzner (Franchot Tone) has been washed up for years, reduced to running a cheap motel. As Rudolph dreams of making a spectacular comeback, his young fiancée, Rosie (Sharon Farrell), falls in love with a handsome TV writer named Cliff Allen (Roger Perry). Ultimately, Rudolph confronts Cliff and forces Rosie to choose between them -- or at least that's how it appears in the grim climax of this tale, in which we learn with startling suddenness why the old trouper was once billed as "Rudolph the Great."
