A small salute to the late June Allyson, that girl-next-door movie musical icon who died on Saturday.
I actually saw her live and in person once during my Turner days. I was walking through the lobby, and this teeny-tiny woman, who had her back to me, was checking in with the receptionist. I knew who it was the second I heard the voice. And, of course, double-noted the distinctive page-boy hair-do. She was at the studio to be interviewed by Robert Osborne for Turner Classic Movies. Still cute as a button - must've been about 80. But she was so short. Notice that the next time you're watching The Glenn Miller Story or Good News. Or an old commercial for Depend undergarments.
She was no Shelley Winters, but she was June Allyson. Salute - Junie, m'girl!
