Kit Marlowe (Bette Davis) is an author whose work is critically acclaimed, yet it has not helped her achieve financial success. Her friend Millie Drake (Miriam Hopkins), however, has developed a knack for writing best-selling trashy novels. After eight years of marriage, Millie's long suffering husband, Preston (John Loder), shocks her by asking for a divorce. When Millie learns that her husband has been secretly in love with Kit the whole time, a feud develops between the women.
