The young but rising top Manager Frank Macklin is sent to reorganize one of them, the one which happens to be the main company in his hometown. At first his old buddies are reluctant to have him as new boss, but since he can't save all of them from the severe changes, the climate soon changes. Then he learns that he increased the profit so much, that his bosses have decided to resell his brewery profitably to an incompetent Texas oil millionaire. Written by Tom Zoerner See less
