The life of a man and woman
together in a large, impersonal metropolis through their hopes, struggles and downfalls.
Born on the fourth of July, 1900,
the future holds unlimited
potential for newborn John Sims.
But dreams soon fade with the
death of his father when John
is but a lad. Like many before him,
John sets out to make his mark
in New York City, but ends up a
faceless worker (#137) in a
large office of a large business.
Still he is happy with his fate
and soon meets a young woman
named Mary on a blind double date.
Things take their course and they
soon marry and live in a small apartment.
Soon John is bickering with Mary
and finds that he has no love
for the in-laws. When the marriage
looks like a bust, he finds that
Mary is with child and he stays.
After 5 years, he has a son and
a daughter and the same dead end
job. When tragedy strikes, John
must find the conviction to
continue or lose what little
he has left. Written by Tony

Did You Know?
Despite the film's widespread
critical and (mild) box-office success,
MGM head Louis B. Mayer despised it,
partly because of the depressing
theme but mainly because he thought
it was obscene due to the bathroom
scene that featured a toilet. See more »
