Synopsis
A powerful editor becomes irate when she learns that a military general, Maj. Gen. Melville A. Goodwin, has been assigned to the Joint Atomic International Commission instead of the candidate she was promoting for the position. Under the pretense of doing a cover story on Goodwin for News World Magazine, she sets up an interview with him and launches an investigation into his past. She hopes to uncover a hidden, dark side. Instead, she finds a man who is relentlessly charming, sincere and ethic. In the process of complicating his life, she falls in love.
