Van Johnson was in so many good movies. He was excellent.

Love,

He should have a stamp. I hope there will be one for him.
I may have seen "The last time I saw Paris," if I did it would be the only movie of his I saw. I have been to a lot of the places named in his titles, starting with "The White Cliffs of Dover." I may list them on my blog if I decide to push his petition.

The White Cliffs of Dover, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Week-End at the Waldorf, When in Rome, Plymouth Adventure John Alden, Brigadoon, The Last Time I Saw Paris, Siege at Red River, 23 Paces to Baker Street, La muerte de un president Texas, Da Corleone a Brooklyn
The Sicilian Boss, and The Purple Rose of Cairo.

The Brigadoon, we saw and walked across the bridge in Ayrshire, Scotland.
Wikipedia says: Brigadoon (disambiguation). The Brig o' Doon, sometimes called the Auld Brig or Old Bridge of Doon is a late medieval bridge in Ayrshire.
Ayrshire cattle originated there and the poet Robert Burns was born there, between Ayr and Doon. We visited his birthplace, also saw a lot of Red Ayrshire cattle.

I have to admit that I'm not familiar with any of his movies.
