Photo Friday: Van & Lucy

Lucy and Van Johnson

I love Van Johnson. You just can't get anymore all-American, boy-next door then Van Johnson.
Lucille Ball is credited with setting Van Johnson's career in motion: She took him to Chasen's Restaurant and introduced him to Billy Grady (MGM casting director) who was sitting at the next table.


  1. Courtney, have you seen the movie "Too Many Girls?" (1940) Both Lucille Ball and Van Johnson were in it. I love Van Johnson too, and another favorite movie of mine is "The Thrill of Romance."

    Thanks for paying tribute to these two great stars-they don't make them like this any more.

    And Courtney, even though I'm the world's worst letter writer, I think of you often, my friend!

  2. I haven't see either, unfortunately! I have a very big "movies to watch" list. Lol.
    I think of you often too! And please don't worry about it! I understand. :)
