New York City newspaper writer J.J. Hunsecker holds big sway over public opinion together with his Broadway column, but one element that he cannot manage is his younger sister, Susan, who's in a dating with aspiring jazz guitarist Steve Dallas. Hunsecker strongly disproves of the romance and recruits publicist Sidney Falco to discover a way to split the couple, no matter how ruthless the method.
