Ann Blyth Kickstarter campaign - 4 days left


"...She senses his growing anxiety.  Like any thoughtful and concerned groom, she gently asks him if he is nervous about the wedding night.
He responds, “Well, a little maybe.  No more than the average man, I guess.”
She delicately tries to reassure him, as if he were a virgin in a 19th century English novel about to faint in the clutches of a highwayman, “There’s nothing to be afraid of, dear.  I’ll be awfully gentle and tender.”
He shoots her an incredulous look, this devil-may-care bachelor having lost all control of the situation..."

From Once More, My Darling (1949), discussed here.
THERE ARE 4 DAYS LEFT to my Kickstarter campaign - looking for backers to raise funds for upcoming  book on Ann Blyth's career - principally to offset costs of fees to obtain never or rarely seen photos in libraries, museums, and newspaper files.  Thanks to all who can help.
