Causing a sensation when it originally aired as part of NBC Sunday Showcase, audiences were enthralled with Sammy Glick, a Jewish boy born in New York's Lower East Side who decides to climb the ladder of success by any means necessary. Through backstabbing and double-crossing, Sammy fights to become the industry's top screenwriter in this rags to riches story of a hustler navigating the 'dog eat dog' world of 1930s Hollywood. Based on the best-selling novel by Budd Schulberg, this highly-influential 1959 television drama stars Larry Blyden, John Forsythe, Barbara Rush, Dina Merrill and Norman Fell.
