Searing Harold Robbins epic depicting the 1930's and exploiting the ugliness of human frailties and how they fester with George Peppard in rare form; along with Classic Hollywood actor Alan Ladd in his last role, as well as Martin Balsam and good guy Robert Cummings in a role-reversal of that well-honed image. Well done but with anti-climactic ending.

So many great lines in this film. Here are three: It's the Battle of Bull Run, Armistice Day, and the Stock Market Crash, all rolled into one.

I'm a fat old elk, who's picked up a hungry wolf on his tail.

Who has a better right to preach than the sinner?
