Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Big Executive is Ricardo Cortez, to whom success is less important than the pursuit of success. Having lost as many fortunes as he's gained, Cortez again teeters on the verge of bankruptcy. His principal business rival, who'd like nothing better than to see Cortez standing on a street corner selling apples, is Richard Bennett. Complicating matters is the fact that Cortez is in love with Bennett's daughter, Elizabeth Young. Paramount Pictures dressed up the low-budget proceedings of The Big Executive with high-class art direction; the film was scripted by Laurence Stallings, best known for such war dramas as The Big Parade.
