From War Nurse to South Pacific

June Walker, Bob's co-star in War Nurse, was primarily a stage actress in the 1920s and 1930s.  Glad she made her one movie of the 1930s with Bob, they made a cute couple.

June's son was John Kerr who played Lt. Cable in South Pacific.  He was a handsome young man ...  obviously good genes.  John died this February 2nd, a day before the anniversay of his Mom's death.

Ah, the magic of movies.  They may have passed and left this mortal coil, but on film and in our memories young Mr. Kerr will always be romancing France Nuyen, and June will always be looking up into Bob's smiling face.
