1952, New York’s number one gossip columnist JJ Hunsecker rules the city with his mighty pen. If you want to know the latest gossip – from the President to the latest It Girl – JJ has it all. If he doesn’t, you can be sure that anyone from J Edgar Hoover and Senator Joe McCarthy through to the press agents eager to push their latest clients, will give it to him.
And there’s one struggling press agent Sindey Falcone, with one client who has given him an ultimatum – no item in JJ’s column, no job.
