JUNE ALLYSON, 88

The ghouligan point goes to JJ, who cites The Associated Press:
Movie star June Allyson, who played sunny, "perfect wife" roles opposite James Stewart and others, has died at her California home. She was 88.

Her daughter says Allyson died of pulmonary respiratory failure and acute bronchitis in Ojai. Her husband of nearly 30 years, David Ashrow, was with her.

Allyson said she was an unlikely movie star, with her lisp and raspy voice. But while World War Two G-I's pinned up sexy photos of other stars, June Allyson was the girl they wanted to marry.

Her films included "The Glenn Miller Story" and "Strategic Air Command."
The girl they wanted to marry. A nice way to be remembered.

Ahh, that's sweet, Red. Seriously sweet.

Yes, Red, that is sweet.
Especially considering she'll be remembered by the current generation only as "that lady in the commercials for adult diapers."
