Abstract:

How far will a man go to climb the corporate ladder? C.C. 'Bud' Baxter, a lowly insurance clerk, has a trump card: his apartment. He "loans" it out to married company executives for secret trysts. In return, he's well looked after, although he does grapple with his conscience. One day he asks out one of the elevator girls, Miss Kubelik, but she stands him up because of a crisis in her relationship with the big boss, Mr. Sheldrake. On Christmas Eve, Miss Kubelik realizes she is only the most recent in a long line of girls, with possibly disastrous consequences. Bud intervenes, which may give each of them a chance to be more than another faceless employee in a heartless corporation.
