Set in the 1870s in San Francisco, as we follow the life story of a ruthless and unscrupulous financial tycoon, Rip MacCool (David Brian), and his meteoric rise from poverty to the top of booming San Francisco society. The pic opens as the greedy tycoon, Rip, plays five-card stud poker with banker Ada Stritch (Mercedes McCambridge) and bets his life earnings of three million dollars against Ada's bank securities and she can win if she sees if he has a four in his hole card to draw an inside straight. The winner will own the bank, the loser will be bankrupt. While they play their game in front of a few onlookers connected with his life story, the tycoon's life is recalled through flashback...
