"If they want happy endings, let 'em go to the movies. It's art, Jessica. It has to end badly." And so we are introduced to Eugene McClenden (Barry Nelson), the moribund, morose Southern playwright and his family and friends, who all have a personal interest in his success (and fortune). Eugene, working on a new play, is resigned to the fact he won't live long, and makes a bold (if business-minded) proposal to Jess. But despite his short life expectancy, Eugene is the one who everyone sees with a gun, standing over dead body in the middle of the night.
