Excellent Role Model
19 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

June Allyson was a truly amazing person, the type that doesn't seem to get any attention by Hollywood today. And it is too bad. On screen and off, she was a pure and interesting person to watch. She was typecast as the perfect woman, the type that every man wanted to marry and that every girl aspired to. Even today, girls can look to her for inspiration.

Here, Allyson is interviewed by Robert Osbourne. She tells stories about her life in Hollywood, her friendships with movie stars, her marriage to Dick Powell, and her thoughts on life. It is much too short really, but what is here is highly entertaining and wonderful. Allyson was 81 years old when this was filmed, but you would swear she was decades younger. Her personality and sweet smile are youthful and vibrant; she is very candid when answering every question.

We need more people in the world like Allyson, optimistic and charming but honest about being imperfect. It is too bad she is gone now, but what she left behind is a great role to aspire to.
