Ginger Trivia, Round Five...
Question ONE: What is the longest G&F movie, running-length-wise?
Question TWO: What is the shortest G&F movie, running-length-wise?
Question THREE: How many movies did Ginger make between "The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle" (1939) and "The Barkleys of Broadway" (1949)? (WITHOUT looking at the list on the right!!!)
Question FOUR: Which five G&F movies did Ginger's buddy (yeah, right) Mark Sandrich direct?
Question FIVE: (a softball...) Which G&F movie is Ginger's favorite?
Question SIX: In "Carefree", how many TOTAL shots did Amanda Cooper fire with various shotguns?
Question SEVEN: Which five G&F movies does Eric Blore appear in?
Question EIGHT: Which actor and actress were originally slated to be the Barkleys?
Question NINE: What song from a G&F movie won the very first Best Song Academy Award?
Question TEN: This one is a bit shaky, so feel free to reply (think I am correct, tho...) ...What is the only G&F movie where they are not already married, not getting married, or not readily apparent that they are going to get married?
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
