It's tough to find many friendly or "nice" actresses today. That classic female demeanor has been mostly purged. But here's one of the incomparable June Allyson:

To give an idea of how lively Garland's humor was, here's a Jack Paar show from 1962. She comes on at about 16:15, and the rest of the show is very enjoyable. I actually remember watching this when...
