Anne Francis in Hollywood - Day 2
On Anne's second day in Hollywood, she was invited to lunch with Miss Mildred Kelly from the MGM publicity department. But when Anne arrived at Miss Kelly's office who was at her desk but none other than Van Johnson or "The Dream" as Anne referred to him. Van was there reading his fan mail. Radio Mirror says that "Anne was too weak to remain standing so she sat hastily in the nearest chair and told him her name" (Radio Mirror, March 1947). They ended up talking for 45 minutes!
