Relationship Information, Quotes, and Trivia

Where and/or how did Dirk Wayne Summers and June Allyson meet?

June and Dirk first met on the set of "Little Women" at MGM in 1948. June was 31 at the time, and a major star at MGM. Dirk, who was visiting his grandfather, actor Harry Davenport, on the film' set, was just 17. Dirk bore a striking resemblance to actor Van Johnson, June's favorite on-screen partner.

Why did Dirk Wayne Summers and June Allyson break up?

June and Dirk were together from 1962 until 1975. During this time June went through a bitter Court battle with her mother over custody of her son, Dick Powell Jr., and adopted daughter Pamela Powell. June's mother told the court that June "was an unfit mother." The judge apparently agreed, and court records show that Dirk was named legal guardian for Dick Powell Jr., and Pamela Powell. This long-drawn out legal case, and June's increased alcoholism, caused a major break in their relationship. Although very much in love for many years, Dirk finally moved on, without June.

Other Relationship Information about Dirk Wayne Summers and June Allyson:

Long before the creation of the Internet and today's mass-media, celebrities were eagerly reported on by syndicated newspaper columnists. First, and foremost among this powerful group was the famous and relentless, Walter Winchell, whose daily column appeared in thousands of newspapers, worldwide. June and Dirk were the lead item in Winchell's (then) influential column more than a few times. Members of the nascent "jet-set," the couple were frequently reported as being "seen in Cap d'Antibes, Madrid, Rome and London" (where they called Hugh Hefner's borrowed Mayfair penthouse, "home." Dirk was a friend of Hefner's from the publisher's early, pre-"Playboy" days in Chicago.) June held a press conference in Los Angeles announcing her engagement to Dirk, displaying to the photographers a five-carat diamond engagement ring he had given her. There was a report by the Associated Press that June and Dirk were married in Greece; and photos of the couple "honeymooning" in Italy and Spain appeared in European newspapers. Both, however, denied the reports.

"I so wish that Dirk and I had married years ago. I would love to have his baby; but at this stage of life, our Doctor has advised against 'Motherhood.' We may adopt later. After all, my wonderful, marvelous daughter Pamela is adopted. And I couldn't love her more." June Allyson 7/12/1969
