Dependable leading man Robert Warwick (who went on to become an even more dependable featured player) stars in Fruits of Desire. Warwick is cast as a hayseed who rises to the top of the executive heap at a local steel mill. In his rise to success, he forgets his humble upbringings, and manages to sever relations with all his old friends. He even trods upon the affections of his faithful girl friend. Warwick's ultimate fall from grace brings things full circle in this cinemadaptation of Henry Russell Miller's novel The Ambition of Mark Truitt.
