    This is one of my favorite episodes just because of them performing together, and I love this song. I have known all the words to this song since the time I learned to talk.

    The ’50s were a time when it was possible to dream, a dream world.Unfortunately new generation wanted vice, violence, no respect, etc.Today world proves nobody is happy anymore.Specially since the ’80s to nowadays the world turned terrible

    When Van was dropped from the Warner Bros. studio roster after a brief period in 1942, it was Lucy who urged him to stay in Hollywood and sign with another studio. She got in touch with someone she knew at MGM- and he was one of their leading stars for almost 15 years. He later repaid her kindness by guest-starring in “The Dancing Star” episode [5/2/55], of which this scene was the highlight…

    I was saddened to learn of Van Johnson’s death. He has long been a favorite of mine. Thanks for posting this as a tribute and memorium to a great actor. May he rest in peace.

    Rest in peace Van & thank you for entertaining me all these years & for not having scandal attached to your name like so many in Hollywood do.

    Here’s a quote from him as to why he was working dinner theater in the 80′s:

    “The white-haired ladies who come to matinees are the people who put me on top, he said in a 1992 interview in Michigan, where he was appearing at a suburban Detroit theater. Im still grateful to them.

    You don’t hear that out of today’s stars do you?
