Van Johnson dies at 92


NEW YORK (AP) — Van Johnson, whose boy-next-door wholesomeness made him a popular Hollywood star in the '40s and '50s with such films as "30 Seconds over Tokyo," "A Guy Named Joe" "Battleground" and "The Caine Mutiny," died Friday of natural causes. He was 92. Johnson died at Tappan Zee Manor, an assisted living center in Nyack, N.Y., said Wendy Bleisweiss, a close friend.
Always sad to see one of the good ones go, isn't it? I've always liked him, he reminded me of a guy you might know from down the street, very amiable type of guy.
