Lancaster played a newspaper columnist out to destroy his sister's (Susan Harrison) relationship with a man he finds inappropriate.
"Sweet Smell of Success" was first panned by critics but since has found a following. Marvin Hamlisch made the movie into a musical in 2002, and AFI ranked Lancaster's character among the top 50 movie villains of all time.
