The Carpetbaggers is a film starring George Perpard, Elizabeth Ashley, Alan Ladd and Carol Baker, which is loosely based on some of the events in the life of real-life millionaire Howard Hughes. The film is about Jonas Cord, Jr. (Perpard), who has been criticized and brow beaten by his father throughout his life. The most recent issue between the father and son was the marriage of the senior Cord to Jonas’ girl, Rena (Baker). The film begins with Jonas flying over his father’s chemical plant with a newly acquired open-cockpit plane and being criticized by his father for his lack of responsible behavior. During the ensuing argument, the elder Cord suffers a stroke and dies. Jonas shows no emotion and immediately has the will read and quickly makes the moves to settle the estate so that he has sole ownership of all property. Once the decisions are made, Jonas returns home to tell his stepmother of his father’s death and to learn why she chose his father over him when they were in love. Jonas begins expanding his businesses and soon meets Monica Winthrop (Ashley), whom he marries. Jonas continues traveling around the country, overseeing his various businesses, and he takes Monica with him until she informs him that she would like for them to settle into a home of their own and possibly have a child. Jonas heatedly informs her that he not only does not want to settle in one place, but he does not want to have any children, ever. Jonas discovers that his oldest and most loyal companion, Nevada Smith (Ladd) is in trouble with a recent motion picture he invested in. Jonas offers his help, casting Rena in the film in order to save Nevada's investment. However, when Rena dies from driving drunk, Jonas soon realizes his mistake and seeks out Monica, who gave birth to their child, and offers to change.

Mob boss Louie Ricarno is leaving "the game," quitting the beer-running rackets and settling down in Florida to write his memoirs and live the good life with his new bride. Yet Ricarno's past returns to spoil his happiness, plunging him back into an underworld of violence and payback. Top-billed Lew Ayres, just two months removed from his success in All Quiet on the Western Front, plays Ricarno in a machine-gunning Pre-Code saga directed by Archie Mayo (The Petrified Forest). Adding extra excitement is James Cagney in his second film, giving a live-wire portrayal as a trusted mob lieutenant who secretly romances the boss' wife. Billed sixth but given much screen time in the film's first hour, Cagney confidently serves notice of an actor on the rise. Barely six months later, he would lay claim to stardom in his fourth film, the seminal gangster classic The Public Enemy.

Saville, The Kiss bears the same title as the 1896 short that "shocked" the American public by being the first motion picture to depict a couple kissing. This 1929 production is notable itself for being the last major silent film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and the final silent performances by both Garbo and Conrad Nagel included the entire cast. Actually, this film is not entirely silent. MGM did take partial advantage of the new sound technology and released The Kiss with an orchestral score and sound effects recorded by the Movietone system.
