Van Johnson, 75, is being treated for a bronchial infection at an unnamed California hospital.

The veteran star of such movies as "The Caine Mutiny," "Brigadoon" and "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" was hospitalized last weekend while appearing in a revival of "Showboat" in Pasadena, Calif. "This is the first time he's ever missed a performance in 56 years," said his manager.
