...BIG NEWS!!!


Warner Brothers has FINALLY released "Perfect Strangers" on DVD!!! (Think they may be reading our stuff over here??? if so...Thanks, cool WB folks!!! ...Now, not to push it, but..Hat Check Girl is sorely needed, y'all!!! :-) )

Here is the link:


...Keep in mind that these DVDs are 'bare bones' releases - just the movie, no extras or scene selections... but this is a big one, as far as Gingerologists go, since for whatever reason, this one has been a tough one to find... it might not be a very good movie, but, if Ginger is in it, I'm there!!!

And, for any of the newer folks on the site, please be aware there are other Ginger movies available in this WB archive series - 'Tom, Dick and Harry', 'Once Upon a Honeymoon', 'Weekend at the Waldorf', and 'Having a Wonderful Time'... plus mucho other old movies of interest...

...I'd say it was a good day! (dancing a hole into the floor...)

Jwalker - VKMfan - PG Giza... :-)

PS... Sorry, but as you probably guessed, this is a 'Region One' DVD ONLY... sad to say. Wish they would make it a 'Universal DVD' (Region zero, I believe)... Since these are somewhat 'limited' as to sales, I would just think there would not be much of an issue regarding piracy... would probably make more making it available to all against any loss from 'copying'... oh well, hope everyone can obtain this one in some manner!


  1. Did you know that you can vote for a movie to be released on DVD at TCM.com?

  2. Well, well! Nothing to see that movies of our dear Ginger are being released in DVD *insert here a big happy smile* Fantastic news, Jwalker! thanks for keep us informed about them.

  3. OH, I'd love to see this one! Dennis Morgan & Ginger Rogers are a good pair :)

  4. YAYYYYY! Celebratry dancing backwards and in high heels o cours!!! XX

  5. Glad to be the bearer of good news, y'all!
    ...well, it is 'en route' to the house as we speak (well, supposedly up to 7 business days, but they are pretty good at getting it here)... I think 2 or 3 of y'all already have this one SOMEHOW, ;-) but I am fine with just ordering it from WB... if anything, to support the 'promotion', and hopefully get MORE Ginger movies out for the masses... :-)

    AC - I have seen the deal over on TCM about voting for a 'movie to DVD'...thanks for reminding me about it - I was wanting to at least put a 'request' in...what say we all go over there and 'stuff the ballot box' for Hat Check Girl???

    It's a nice day of celebration in the World of Gingerology... if I could dance, I would, y'all!
    I CAN just jump up and down, whilst 'hoopin' and hollerin', tho!!!


  6. I think this occasion merits a few steps of the Charleston in celebration!

  7. "what say we all go over there and 'stuff the ballot box' for Hat Check Girl???"
    THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN DOING FOR TWO MONTHS! And last time I checked it was still at #600. >:(
    I was telling someone the other week to go do this. But you have to provide an e-mail address so the same potentially the same person can't vote... good thing I have about 30 crap e-mail addresses. :D


  8. Yay!!! They finally released it!!

    It is time for a celebration for all GR fans!!!haha..

  9. ...BTW, Greetings to the new 'followers' (i.e., budding Gingerologists), Tom, Kate Gabrielle, and Merriam! Glad to have you aboard! Hopefully the site will prove to be entrtaining, informative, and interesting for you... and please feel free to interact...we are yakkers over here!!!


  10. Lauren... I will get over to TCM, el Pronto - I thought about doing a 'contact us' on there, and just request HCG... if even 2 or 3 send in asking about it, they may hunt down HCG and show it one day...

    ..and I dare not ask why you have 30 E-mail accounts set up... some mysteries are better off unsolved... :-P


Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!

...I TRULY appreciate these, and the kind words regarding this blog...thanks for all the inspiration I have drawn from each of your blog sites, which are all awesome in their unique ways!!!
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
