Description:When General Goodwin (Kirk Douglas) gets a prime appointment instead of her favorite, magazine editor Dottie Peale (Susan Hayward) determines to write a smear piece on her. When she can't find any dirt, she has the General out to her place and traps him into some situations that make him look silly. But she also falls in love with him. When he refuses to marry her, she writes a scathing article accusing him, among other things, of giving information to the enemy. Before it comes out, Goodwin changes his mind and proposes. The article comes out, resulting in a senate hearing. Dottie defends Goodwin and slams her own article, but things look bad until the last minute, when some secret documents are released proving Goodwin's innocence. He and Dottie end up together.

Likeable characters, and a good presentation on the sleaziness of the press.
