Audiences would not accept her in the role and the movie failed at the box office. Another time she played a lesbian murderess in They Only Kill Their Masters (1972), one of her final films.

She wore a back brace for four years and taught herself to dance by watching Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movies. She was told that the accident would prevent her from having children.

She initially turned down the opportunity to be a celebrity spokesperson for Depends undergarments because "it was not a very pleasant subject".

In December 1993, June Allyson dedicated the Holland-America Line cruise ship the MS Maasdam.
