First met June Allyson on the set of _Little Women (1948) in 1948. June was 31 at the time and a major star at MGM. Dirk, who was visiting his grandfather, Harry Davenport, on the film set, was just 17. Dirk bore a striking resemblance to Van Johnson, June's favorite on-screen partner. They were together from 1962 to 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.

Summers claimed in a sworn deposition that he was married to June Allyson.
No 'Formalized Wedding'
"We never had a formalized wedding," he told The Times. "We lived together. We were together for four years. I've never gone public with that. . . . We had a wonderful relationship. We're still very close friends."
Allyson could not be reached for comment, but her manager, Jerry Cohen, said: "They were never married. She loaned him a credit card. That was it. He went to Europe and spent $3,000, and she got the bill." Summers had befriended Allyson after the death of her husband, actor Dick Powell.
