De mortuis and all that, but man, I always really disliked June Allyson. Not that I'm not sad she's dead, but her virtues/appeals, which seemed to be unrelated to whatever talent she had, didn't do much for me. Which is basically irrational; I love Doris Day, who is, just like JA, a cracked-voice-d blond singing Golden Era star, but June Allyson always seemed saccharine to me in the way people actually sometimes say about DD: boring, bland, milquetoasty, who cares. To me, Doris has a lot more spice/intrigue/interest.
