June Haver, the star of several 1940s musicals, has passed away at the age of 79. Haver was pegged as the next Betty Grable, but found her own place in the war time films of the era. She was also married to My Three Sons star Fred MacMurray until MacMurray's death in 1991. I myself have always had only a vague knowledge of Haver, but if you're tired of the current crop of Hollywood flicks, do yourself a favor and rent one of her fourteen musicals. They may be the product of another time, but they're still remarkable.
