Synopsis

Howard Fast's number one best-seller -- the rags-to-riches-to-rags saga of a young Italian immigrant who battles his way out of the San Francisco earthquake to become a shipping magnate, rise to the top of Nob Hill's society through a loveless marriage to the daughter of the city's wealthiest family, and find happiness with an Oriental mistress despite the collapse of his fortune during the Wall Street crash. It made its spectacular way to television on the strength of sincere performances by a solid cast of actors who knew they would be upstaged by the legendary earthquake, recreated on the Universal backlot with new special effects intercut with footage from the studio's earlier "Earthquake," from MGM's "San Francisco" (with individually colored frames for matching shots), and from existing newsreel footage of the actual event in 1906.
