Story Card Edit
While the success of First Encounter was still fresh in the studio's mind, Madra Lord decided that it was time to strike while the iron (and the actress) was hot. For although her recent roles had been both juicy and meaty, she was ready for a little dessert to round out her cinematic buffet. And so Madra's campaign began.
One morning, sitting in her steam cabinet, her phone began to ring. Grumbling, she wrapped herself in a Turkish towel and headed for the phone nook. On the other end of the line was Reuben Lilienthal's assistant.
"Can you get here right away? You've finally worn R.L. down and he's agreed to see you. IF you can be here in an hour! He says he'll order lunch in..."
"About time!" thought Madra--as she dashed through a quick shower and fixed her face and hair. But what to wear...
The yellow? It made her look jaundiced. The blue? Much too somber. She pawed through her closet: no, no, no, no, no, no, no...YES!!
The pink. Perfect. A bright pink suit with classic lines. Youthful. Gutsy. It reeked of professionalism.
She grabbed her ammunition--a smart portfolio of artwork featuring her in her best roles--and hurried to the studio. Brushing past R.L.'s secretary, she burst into his office, sitting in the chair nearest the sandwiches, just in time to hear R.L. shout into the phone, "Gene, dear! I'm so glad I caught you! Now, about your new film--let's get together at your convenience..."
And Madra's face flushed as pink as her outfit.
