Ginger Trivia, Round Two...
QUESTION ONE: "Flying Down to Rio" was Fred Astaire's second 'major' motion picture; it was Ginger's _______.
QUESTION TWO: What movie is generally considered as Ginger's favorite as a 'fan', but not one she actually appeared in?
QUESTION THREE: It is pretty obvious that Ginger made more movies for RKO Studios (32) than any other studio; Which studio is in second place as far as Ginger movies go?
QUESTION FOUR: Regarding Question Three, what is the third place studio for Ginger films?
QUESTION FIVE: Pretty easy for VKM buffs, but... What movie did Ginger's Mom, Lela, appear in along side Ginger?
QUESTION SIX: Who was Ginger married to for the shortest of her five marriages?
QUESTION SEVEN: Who was Ginger married to for the longest of her five marriages?
QUESTION EIGHT: Most Gingerologists are quite familiar with the phrase, "Ginger did everything Fred did...backwards and in high heels!" But, who is credited with this phrase, and where did it first appear?
QUESTION NINE: What year was Ginger the highest paid woman in the U.S. ($250,000.00), as well as the 8th-highest paid person overall in the U.S.?
QUESTION TEN: What Ginger outfit from what movie has been (and hopefully still is) on display at the Smithsonian Institute?
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
