Parkville was a quaint New England town full of history. Some of the new history was the romance between Judy Dunn and Lee Sanders that was going great until Peter Byrnes arrived to write a book on the history of the town. Peter was different from Lee; he was quieter and more calm, but he was also much older. At first Judy was impressed that he found her so attractive but the more she saw him the more she felt. Still her friends made fun of her dating "the old bookworm". Trying to please her, Peter took her to a dance, but left when he found the music too loud. At first, Judy stays to have fun, but then runs after him realizing that he was "the one".

Genre:
Romance
Characters:
Jennie Traynor; Bill Ryan; Roy Tindal; Pete
Synopsis:
Jennie Traynor loved to dance, and dreamed of being on the big stage. When talent agent Bill Ryan came to the small Virginia town offering auditions, her boyfriend, Pete, told her that this is the best way to grab her dreams. She entered and won the contest and as a prize Ryan offered to take her to the bright lights of New York. However, the only job Ryan managed to find for her was dancing in the chorus line of a sleazy club owned by Roy Tindal. Intrigued by her beauty and charm, Tindal took an interest in Jennie, and her dreams seemed to be coming true when he cast her to appear on Broadway in a play he is producing. But success has a big price and Jennie realizes her ill-made choices may cause her to lose everything she previously had, while gaining her little.

Indexer Notes

Original title was "I Went Too Far". Because of the risque nature of the original story, every page of this was heavily edited to receive approval by the Comics Code for reprint. Due to the heavy changes (including inking out of entire panels leaving them black), some have called this the most poorly reworked story in the history of comics.

Jean goes to the newspaper office to have a stern converstaion with Medford, but instead finds him charming and accepts a date with him. Romance blossoms until Jean learns what kind of devious reporter Medford is, and she breaks up with him. As her father's election looms, Medford threatens to run a smear campaign against John Davies unless she returns to him. The mayor is re-elected, and when Medford comes to apologize, Jean will have nothing to do with it chosing honor over love.
