Robert Wise - Executive Suite (1954)
The president of Tredway Corp. has unexpectedly dies.
Long live the new president. But who will the exec be ?
There's no official line of succession...
and so the shady deals and insider back-stabbing begin.
Boardroom and boudoir politics play out in this star-packed tale of corporate machinations directed by versatile Robert Wise (The Sound of Music, The Set-Up). A bottom-line opportunist (Fredric March) and an idealistic manufacturing VP (William Holden) emerge as leading candidates for the top post. But while power-suited men maneuver, a woman (Barbara Stanwyck) may have the most clout. She's the founder's daughter and the company's major stockholder... and may be the velvet power behind the Tredway throne.
