Reporter: Are you really going to retire, Miss marsh?
Miss Marsh: I may. I can’t make up my mind. I shall have to ask my future husband. He won’t let me make another film.
Reporter: Your future husband, Miss Marsh?
Miss Marsh: Yes. Let me introduce him to you. His name is Carlos.
We are going to get married next week.
Kate: Look, Millie! Here’s another report about Karen Marsh. Listen:
“ Karen Marsh: The Latest. At her London Hotel today Miss Marsh told reporters she might retire. She said she couldn’t make up her mind. She said she would have to ask her future husband. She said her future husband would not let her make another film. Then she introduced us to Carlos and told us they would get married next week.”
Millie: That’s sensational news, isn’t it, Kate?
Kate: It certainly is. He’ll be her sixth husband!
1．He won't let me make another film.他不會再讓我拍電影了。
2．introduce A to B,將A介紹給B，向B介紹A。
5．…she would have to ask her future husband．……她得問問她的未婚夫。
這部分是從句，在整句話中作said的直接賓語。 would have to ask是 結構。因為主句的謂語動詞是said，相對過去的這一時間點的將來就是過去的將來，所以用過去將來時結構。
She lets her son play in the garden.
Her parents wouldn't let her go out with that boy.
Just let me try!
They didn't let the guests smoke in the lobby.
