...hope y'all get to pick this one up...it's a pretty neat film... typical Joe E. Brown histrionics, but they're pretty funny in general... AND, hope everyone is well out there, and Keeping It Gingery, of course!!!

FIRST - the 'Ginger on TV' feature has been removed as a 'page' (the 'bullet point' links on the top right of the home page), and will now just be on the 'main page', which is the more direct route anyway...
SECOND - after a bit of indecision, the 'This Day in Gingerology' page (the 'complete year' list) has also been deleted, as the replication of adding items to it along with my 'main list' in my computer proved to be sketchy... but of course the feature itself will remain, and in fact will hopefully get a bit augmented if Hu's efforts are fruitful...
THIRD - just noticed it's been purt near a YEAR since the last GingerReview... which is pretty inexcusable... SO, I'm getting back with it, el pronto... stay tuned... no, REALLY... :-)
FOURTH - The GingerFaceBook Community is just incredible... SO much info to be had there, along with an ENDLESS array of GingerPics, such as the one below - which is one of my 'instant faves'!!! If you haven't already, ya REALLY need to join us over there...
...and oh yeah! I received my '4-R Milk Bottle' - pretty awesome! I haven't even taken it out of the 'bubble' wrap, but you can see thru it, and its awesome! Hope to be able to display it sooner or later...most likely when my boy 'Bam-Bam' is a good bit older... oh, like, 42 or something... ;-)
...We here at Gingerology sincerely hope everyone is having a Great Gingery Summer! Hope to see ya over on FaceBook, as well as here, of course...

Official Ginger Rogers Milk Bottle
...and to verify the authenticity even further, Ms. Roberta Olden commented on the Ginger Rogers IMDb message board (see the "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GINGER!!!" post, which I actually made in 2013, but resurfaced for GingerTennial +3 in 2014) that she has teamed up with TCM in order to make these available to Gingerologists - here's part of her post regarding it (hopefully she doesn't mind I transcribe it here):
"In honor of her birthday, I would like to alert her fans to a special partnership I have made with Turner Classic Movies. They have agreed to put the glass milk bottles from the 4R Ranch Dairy in their collectible shop on the TCM website. There are a limited number of them available, so I have put the web address in case anyone is interested."
With that, it's good to be back from vacation - had a great time at the beach last week! But ready to get back to work...I guess...

Hope y'all have a great one, and I'll catch up with y'all this weekend!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
