Gibbsville is set in a 1940's Pennsylvania mining town, depicting the lives of the citizens as seen through the eyes of Ray Whitehead, a newspaper reporter for the Gibbsville Courier, who was once a prestigious foreign correspondent but destroyed his career and reputation with alcoholism.
It's loosely based on short stories by John O'Hara and set in a small town in Pennsylvania in the 40s. John Savage is young Jim Malloy (or the young O'Hara, whichever you prefer), a cub reporter and son of the town doctor. Malloy likes girls, good assignments and doesn't mind making the city fathers look foolish now and then. Gig Young plays Ray Whitehead. He's a former foreign correspondent who has returned to the paper that kept him poor when he was young. Whitehead likes liquor far too well — it's the reason for his demise in reporting circles — and good stories, too, when he can resist the tinkle of ice in a glass.
