After reading the novel "A Woman's Story", an excited Ann believes she's found what has the potential to be the greatest part for a young actress ever in the lead character, Della. The problem is that the novel's author, Joseph Nelson, has so far refused all offers to sell the rights to make it into a movie, despite all his other novels already having been made into movies. Her agent Sandy's attempt to buy the rights for Ann get nowhere, even if she did have the money, which she doesn't. So Ann decides to approach Nelson himself, with a little acting thrown in. Ann and Donald are able to find where the Nelson's live. Although Nelson's wife Frances can see through Ann's deception to get into their house, Nelson himself seems sympathetic to Ann.

While Sandy revels in the negotiation to make Ann... Written by Huggo
