Sad news today that June Allyson, a favorite actress of many wonderful films of the '40s and '50s, has died at 88. She was a unique personality, with her raspy but appealing voice and cheerful disposition. (She was also mighty effective in crying scenes...)
Allyson's best films include GOOD NEWS, LITTLE WOMEN, and THE GLENN MILLER STORY. My younger daughter is a particular Allyson fan and has watched her countless times in TWO GIRLS AND A SAILOR. :)
