Van Johnson, RIP

NYACK, N.Y.–Van Johnson, whose boy-next-door wholesomeness made him a popular Hollywood star in the ’40s and ’50s, died at an assisted living center here Dec. 12 of natural causes. He was 92.
MSTies will recall his role as less-than-perfect dad Lester Scott in the movie in episode 614 – SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL. He also appeared as Chip Green in episode K15 – SUPERDOME.

    Re #6. He was very good in Brigadoon : It’s not the heat, it’s the humanity.
