Memories of June Allyson have pretty much evaporated. Only boomers remember her, and vaguely at that. Her peak movie-star decades were the '40s and '50s. Born in 1917, she'd aged out of romantic or loving-wife roles by the late '50s and had shifted her focus to television. I've always thought of Allyson as Doris Day without the singing -- a petite blonde with a warm heart, a spunky personality and a great smile.
