Storyline

While they're out for lunch, Doris and Jackie are approached by a man named Mitch Folger who is in San Francisco for the day, he a representative of Hollywood based Associated Talent Agency and Drama School, which trains and represents actors specifically for television commercial work. He wants to represent Doris. Cy is certain Mitch is a charlatan, and always wanting to do a story on these fakes wants Doris to enroll in Associated in Hollywood. As Doris starts to work on the story, it becomes abundantly clear to her that Mitch is indeed a fraud as he asks her for more money after more money. But Cy and Doris believe they will be able to nail Mitch as the contract guarantees an acting job. Mitch may have some say in the matter. Written by Huggo
