Actually, it is director George Stevens 'day'; "Swing Time" is on at 11:00 Eastern, followed a bit later by "Vivacious Lady" at 2:15 Eastern (there is another Stevens directed movie airing between these)...he directed both of those, and got to know Ginger quite well...that lucky dawg!
Also, at 6:00 Eastern, the documentary "George Stevens - A Filmakers' Journey" airs - There are evidently some Ginger moments within it, since it always pops up on Ginger movies being shown...honestly I have not seen it, but REALLY plan to tape it tomorrow...
Hope y'all can watch! VKMfan
