June Allyson had the most gorgeous complexion. Would you believe she was born in the Bronx, and named Ella Geisman?

When she was eight, a dead tree branch fell on her while she was bicycling. Several bones were broken, and doctors said she would never walk again. She underwent months of swimming exercises and regained her health. After graduating from a wheelchair to crutches to braces, she was inspired to dance by obsessively watching Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire movies

In 1938, a choreographer gave her a job and a new name: 'June for the month, and 'Allyson', which was a family name.

In her later years her health began failing following hip-replacement surgery, and she died at her home in Ojai, California on July 8, 2006. She was 88 years old. Her death was a result of pulmonary respiratory failure and acute bronchitis.
