The Solid Gold Cadillac is a story of corporate greed and corruption and the small stockholder who did more than blow the whistle. International Projects is a gigantic corporation with a corrupt board that is out to get rich. The CEO, Edward L. McKeever (Paul Douglas), is off to a new position in Washington where he can leverage his influence to secure lucrative federal contracts for International Projects. He and the board have everything going exactly the way they want, and the stockholders have no reason to complain, because they're getting rich too. But one stockholder, who owns only ten shares, is exuberant about having a voice in the company. Laura Partridge (Judy Holliday) goes to her first shareholders meeting and drills the unexpecting board with questions about their salaries and the corporation. McKeever takes a liking to her for her interest, while the board becomes increasingly bothered by her meddling. She starts to have a positive influence on McKeever, so much so that the board sees only one solution: give her a high-paying position at the corporation so that they can keep an eye on her. Of course, this turns out to be the worst thing they could do.moreless
