...a movie reminder...

...'Once Upon a Honeymoon' appears on TCM tomorrow (12/28) at 2 pm Eastern...If you haven't seen it, G-ology highly recommends it... the pairing of Ginger with Cary Grant is pretty magical - of course Ginger just radiates in this one...although, to me, her hair color kinda 'fluctuates' throughout, it seems...but hey, I'm not complaining... the movie itself also has a pretty neat plot - set in WWII before the US involvement. 'cloak and dagger' type stuff... but also some funny scenes, romantic ones, and of course, being a war movie, some intense ones throughout...

For those who record, please note that this one clocks in at JUST under two hours - 116 minutes... DVD recorders (mine, anyway) defaults to a two hour recording max - so just FYI.

AND, if you don't get TCM, Warner Brothers 'archive' series has come out with this one, which I actually purchased (even tho I taped it from TCM a while back...yeah, I'm a hopeless case concerning the ways of G-ology...) - the archive DVD is pretty clean, but no 'extras' at all.
At any rate, hope y'all get to see it - it's an 'essential' VKM movie!

  2. hope you enjoy it, AC! It is a bit 'disjointed' inspots, but overall, the Ginger-Cary chemistry is pretty cool...or hot, depending on how you interpret it...

  4. yep...(sigh)... the fur is faux, of course... :-)
    ...As for the second pic, I assume it was a 'publicity' photo for the movie, but I don't remember her wearing that particular outfit in it...need to 'back check' on that...nevertheless, that is a very cool pic of them...

  5. Love the pic of Ginger/Cary....Maybe its just wishful thinking but I really think Cary was Ginger's "man who got away". I mean look at the way she looks at him...I never saw her look that way at Fred or Jimmy or anyone else! Same thing happens in Monkey Business. I dunno. I think the hair color thing was planned. It starts out very dark as she is "playing" Katherine Butt (haha)-Smith, the Baroness but then gets lighter as she relaxes and transforms into Katie O'Hara.
