Synopsis:
Beverly accuses Will of failing to be serious about his intention to marry her. She won't wed him without being a film star, and she says he won't use his journalistic connections with the movie studios to get her a break into the business. He coughs up a lead: Independent Pictures is on a hunt for a sophisticated actress. Beverly thus creates the alter-ego of "Mademoiselle La Verne" and spends much of the story sporting a French accent.

The ploy appears to work; Independent offers "La Verne" a three-picture deal.

However, the director of the first of these three films, Mr. Handlock, believes that she's somehow a fake. He asks his boss, J.G. Javers, for the opportunity to prove that she's an American faker. Javers gives Handlock until the contracts are signed the next day at 3pm.

Handlock and his team of writers struggle to find a way to trick "La Verne", and draw blanks. But at 3pm, an idea hits Handlock. He stops "La Verne" just as she's about to sign on the dotted line. Promising her more money to stop her from signing, he suggests that the film has been re-written to include her character's American twin. IF she can effect a convincing American accent, she'll play both roles, doubling her income.

Beverly thus breaks character to reveal she can indeed speak with an American accent. But the feat doesn't impress Javers, who now sees her for the fake she is. He tears up the contract, and invites her to come back later to audition for smaller roles.

Synopsis:
Beverly buys a glass zebra at a shop. On her way out, she bumps into actress Lisabeth Scott, who had come to the store to buy the very same item. Star struck, Beverly intends to just hand it over to her idol. But nerves make her fumble the interchange, and the zebra falls to the ground, shattered.

The two laugh at the irony of neither of them getting what they wanted to buy, and soon are chatting away. They part company after Scott invites Hills over to her house to look at her figurine collection one day.

When Hills is later out with her boyfriend, Will Shire, the duo notice the exact same zebra figurine that had been broken earlier. Hills buys the second copy, and then goes over to Paramount, where Scott is filming Paid in Full. She doesn't immediately get to see Scott, of course. While waiting, she is cast as an extra in the film. After she completes her day's work, Hills is able to give Scott the figurine at last, and happily refuses Scott's offer of reimbursement. Beverly says she's been "paid in full" by being allowed to work on the film.

Synopsis:
Beverly's friend, Gwenny, asks the would-be starlet for advice on how to keep her man. Beverly takes the task seriously, and researches the topic at the library. She compiles all her research into a letter that she mails to Gwenny. When Beverly later inquires about the utility of her research, Gwenny says that she didn't even have to read it. Since Gwenny's new boyfriend is her local postman, the letter naturally brought him to her doorstep.

Synopsis:
Beverly's up for a part at National Pictures. The role will involve her having to dress like a boy. As part of the screen test, she's sent down to wardrobe to see how convincingly she can be transformed into the opposite gender. The effect is so realistic that the movie's director doesn't even recognize her.

This gives Beverly an idea. If someone who's just met her as a woman doesn't recognize her as a man, maybe her boyfriend won't either. That way, she can figure out just what Will thinks of her when she's not around.

She goes down to Will's offices at the West Coast Star, and indeed, the disguise is working properly. When she leads the conversation over to the subject of girlfriends, Will speaks in extremely flattering terms of Beverly. She is so moved by Will's expression of affection that she happily unmasks herself.
