Ann goes to an audition not knowing what the part is. Regardless, she gets the job, it a small part in a television show. The producer, Hal Grissom, was looking for a specific type: beautiful, classy and elegant. Ann is delighted when she learns that she will get to wear expensive gowns, and be bedecked in real diamonds. She is equally happy to hear that her entrance is a grand magnificent one down a regal spiral staircase. She is less enthralled to learn that the part also requires her to get hit in the face with a pie when she reaches the bottom of the staircase. Ann is torn about accepting the job. On the one hand, she needs the money, and the job is a lucrative $500 one. On the other hand, she feels it is degrading. The money side wins.

She also feels that whatever exposure she gets for the work will now diminish her chances for getting what she considers ... Written by Huggo
