No title - just a fan
I'm such a fan of both June Allyson and Van Johnson working together. Would love to see a boxed DVD set of their films. I can clearly tell Ms. Allyson enjoyed her work and her acting came across so effortlessly. I grew up watching TV when there were only 3 main channels. I had to be in bed at a certain time and sometimes I would sneak and watch the old movies, while everyone else was in bed sleeping. I didn't have cable TV for many years, TCM clearly became my number 1 station, when I did start watching cable TV. I looooove romantic/funny stories. Today's movies...too bad they are missing out on good storytelling....very rare that we get a good story like the classics had. I hear this a lot as I'm sure your station does too.
A spring day in June!
A wonderful delight to watch.
100 % Overrated
- Pauline Miller
I just watched Two Girls and A Sailor today. She is completely overrated as a comdienne. She is Hilarious! And how about Two Sisters from Boston -Hilarious. Oh and then there are the times she breaks your heart particularly when she is a jilted cripple in Her Highness and the Bell Boy. We want a June Allyson collection and we want it now! I'd love to see her Private Screenings interview as well.
Adoré a June Allyson desde mi infancia, con Little Women. Pero también pude admirarla como la gran actriz que fue en títulos tales como Too Young to Kiss, The Shrike o A Stranger in my Arms. Gran actriz, gran persona, bella donna.
Over-rated & sickly sweet
I don't understand why June Allyson kept making the lousy remakes of classic 30's movies that she did. I'm sure she was a nice person in real life but in my opinion she should have quit movies in the 50's if she couldn't find an original script. I know she wasn't responsible for the productions but to think she could hold a candle to the likes of Claudette Colbert, Norma Shearer, Carole Lombard, Irene Dunne or Katherine Hepburn is beyond me. Obviously her sickly sweet persona is one that doesn't appeal to me but others like her. If she had been kept in supporting roles she might have been OK but I can't take her as the lead. I love Jimmy Stewart but I can't stand any of the three movies she made with him, I think she ruined those films. The only movie she was in that I like is "Her Highness and the Bellboy" where she was in a supporting role which suited her screen personality.
My favorite June Allyson moment on film
- Jarrod McDonald
While I agree with the poster who liked June's version of Jo in the remake of 'Little Women,' I have to say my favorite performance of hers is in 'Executive Suite' which came a few years later. I love the scene where William Holden has to go back to work, and June takes their son outside to continue playing catch. It had that tomboyish quality she showed in Little Women, but it also had a real earthy maternal quality to it. She made being a mom on film seem so natural and fun. It's like she wasn't acting in that scene...she was just doing what she does best, and that is relating with other human beings. Great!
GREATER THAN GREAT!
- June Allyson Fan
She was the sweetest! I have read her autobiography and it was great! I would suggest any movie of her's to anyone! (But I especially like Two Sisters from Boston and Two Young Too Kiss) She is one of my favorite actresses and always will be. No one will ever be like her. There will never be anyone like any of those old actors and actresses. I don't know what happened but they were so much better than the ones today. TV stinks these days. They are so innapropriate for children to see that is why some day I will show these to my children and hope they love them as much as I do. I hope that God is taking good care of her. She deserves it.
June was so underrated as a musical star
"thou swell" from Words and Music was the highlight of that film and there were plenty of good numbers in that movie. I do wish TCM would show more of the musical films that June Allyson was in and show them in prime time.
We Want a "June Allyson's Collection On DVD"!!!
- Paula and Rafael
Hi! We are June Allyson's fans from South-America. We love so much the movies of our June Junie. We think she deserve a box (dvd) with her wonderful movies, specially those unknown, like: Too Young To Kiss, The Sailor Takes a Wife, Two Sisters from Boston, High Barbaree, The Opposite Sex, You Can't Run Away From It, these movies are impossible to find to buy. Thanks!
Needs a collection of her own
I love June Allyson's movies, especially when she is paired up with the wonderful Van Johnson. I wish that TCM would release a collection featuring her, it has long been awaited. My absolute favorite movie of hers is Two Girls [sisters] and a Sailor.
A true star
June was wonderful in every role she played. She was such a sweetheart. I don't know how you couldn't love her. She is the true definition of a star.
junie was wonderful!
junie was everyone's girl next door.nobody hates her. in fact everyone loves her always will.she could do anything and worked with some of the best actors in films.she always will be one of my favorites.
- Parker Flores
She was so popular because she was true to herself and you knew the character she played was similar to how she was in real life, a happy cheerful person. I wish there were more people like her. I'm sure she is missed by many.
Will be missed
June allyson was a great actress. I enjoy watching her movies they are both funny and very touching. I especially like the movies she played with James Stewart and Peter Lawford two of my favorites leading men. If you haven't seen any of her movies i encourage you to watch them, you will not be let down. June you will always be remember.
You will be missed

I was a young man when i first met Miss Allyson she was a guest artist at a Theater Conference that was hosted by our state Thespian organization. As an officer i was assigned to be Miss Allyson's guide at the conference. She was extremely gracious to me and a grand lady. She had no pretenses she was a real human being. It has been over 20 years now and I will never forget some advice she gave me. Be true to what you believe and never waiver from the things you know are true. I am now a professional actor and i have taken the things she told me to heart. I try to never compromise my values in the business. May God bless you Miss Allyson you were an ispiration to us all.
JUNE WAS AND IS A SWEETY!
- Louise Kostecke
ELLA WAS SO SWEET AND WHAT I NEEDED AT THE TIME. WHEN I WAS 5 I WATCHED MOVIES ALL THE TIME. IT WAS A GREAT ESCAPE FROM MY EXTREMELY UNHAPPY MOTHER! AND I KNEW I COULD ACT AT THE AGE OR 5. JUNE WAS LOVED BY OLDER SISTER SUE AS WELL.HER SOFT FEMININE WAY WILL ALWAYS BE APPRECIATED!!! PRETTY PRETTY FACE WAS JUNES, WE GET SICK OF THE ONES WHO ARE TOO TOO BEAUTIFUL. GIVE ME A BREAK WE ARE NOT SO. THATS WHY WE LOVE MERYL AND JUNE ALLYSON SO MUCH, THEY ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN THE OTHERS. JUNE AND MERYLS BEAUTY IS EVEN DEEPER!!! THANK YOU HOLLYWOOD!
- Karl Holzheimer
June Allyson was always a pleasure to watch. There was just something about her that was genuine and appealling. I know most people admire Katherine Hepburn's portrayl of Jo in "Little Women" but I find it mannered. June Allyson will always be my favorite on-screen Jo. Also memorable are "Good News" (very underrated), "High Barbaree" and her guest stints in "Thousands Cheer" and "Words and Music". Her interview with Robert Osborne for "Private Screenings" in 1998 just confirmed that she was as appealling off-screen as on. She will be missed.
