Ping Pong 95 - 01/17/11 10:45 PM

Ooops. I was a little too zealous in my housecleaning. On the other hand, the last entry in the last Ping Pong game was over 60 days ago (because I was deleting "older than...").

So, to make up for that, I'm launching a new game.

Since he's just won a Golden Globe....

Actually, that was the working title back in 194-something, but the film was released as "Two Girls and a Sailor." Sorry about that.

I don't remember if I ever watched it or not (probably not), but with a title like that and Van Johnson, it sounds like an MGM musical. So I'm guessing June Allyson. Yes? No?
