Description by

It's the beginning of a long, amicable rivalry when Big John McMasters (Clark Gable), a dashing charmer and his more stolid partner Square John Sand (Spencer Tracy) team up and strike it big in the adventurous new oil industry. Their competition eventually extends beyond the oil fields as McMasters succeeds in winning Betsy Bartlett (Claudette Colbert), the girl they both love, away from Sands. Not one to let a wounded ego get in the way of what's right, San helps save his friend's marriage when McMasters' head is turned by a big city bombshell (Hedy Lamarr).
