In Old Chicago
This OscarÂ®-winning film about an explosive family dynamic is interwoven with the tale of a city afire with greed, corruption and ambition.
The story centers on the O'Leary family, pioneer settlers whose eldest boys achieve notoriety and power in bustling Chicago. After Jack (Don Ameche) gets elected mayor with the help of his popular brother Dion (Tyrone Power), the two lock horns over the future of Chicago's slums.

It is not until a massive fire wipes out all of old Chicago that the O'Learys' lives are changed forever.
