PLOT SYNOPSIS


After being chastised by the sitting Senator for challenging “the old order,” firebrand defense attorney Jeff Keane (LIONEL BARRYMORE) runs for the Senate… and wins! Unfortunately, it’s a triumph that carries Keane to defeat and ruin. Suborned to run by his fellows in the Bar Association, Jeff proves a formidable foe of the corrupt forces of big business and crony politics, earning him the nickname of “the new Lincoln.” But this new Lincoln is an old widower, and sinister forces set the most dangerous woman in Washington, Consuela Fairbanks (KAREN MORLEY), in Jeff’s path. Jeff quickly marries Consuela who wastes no time in leading Jeff into political corruption, much to the dismay of Jeff’s daughter Ruth (DIANE SINCLAIR) and Jeff’s own conscience.
