Storyline

A woman in a slip is at her dressing table getting ready for a night out as her husband paces nervously. He's thinking back 30 years when, as a young man, he paid a visit to a pawnshop, a Nixon poster on the wall, a prostitute plying her trade outside. As he works up the courage to tell her whatever is eating at him, the flashbacks show a sleazy salesman pitching a necklace with a diamond-studded pendant. Back in the bedroom, he screws his courage to the sticking point and tells her the truth, as a fly buzzes annoyingly in the background. Are karmic forces at work? Will the sole of a shoe meet the soul of a heel? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Some credit to Guy DeMaupassant's The Necklace?
12 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

In DeMaupassant's world-famous short story The Necklace, a couple slave for 10 years to pay off a loan for a diamond necklace they bought to replace a necklace they borrowed and lost, not knowing the original was a fake. This story has a husband tormented for years after finding out that the necklace he bought his wife was a fake, until he confesses to her. Showcasing Daryl is very misleading. She could have at least worn a nurse's outfit. However her cameo did serve the purpose of getting me to download the film so using her as bait did work. The School of Thespian acting is uniformly good, especially Raymond O'Connor's clichéd, sleazy Joe Pesci-ish pawnbroker. All of these Amazon shorts are vehicles to upsell props from the films so with this fore-knowledge, they take on the feel of a lengthy commercial. This is probably going to be the commercial-format of the future when television, advertising and the Internet finally merge.
