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
P.S. - A BIG Gingerology welcome to our newest follower, Zoe! Please feel free to comment on anything occurring on this blog - we are big on gabbing-yakking, etc... Thanks for following! VKMfan

Sorry it has been awhile since the last post...been busy with the typical holiday issues, as it seems everyone else is...but we are almost completed! Hope you have had success in finding what you were looking for!
Well, this is a 'milestone' post for G-ology...#50! So, I figured I would try to combine two of the more popular aspects of this blog for the special occasion...Trivia, along with Ginger Pix!!!
The topic of this round of trivia deals with names (maiden names, 'aliases', etc...) generally for characters Ginger played, but one or two 'real life' questions as well. As usual, DO NOT look at the Comment Section until you are ready for the answers, because that is where they are... the pictures match the question, or at least I hope so...Good Luck!
QUESTION ONE: What was Roxie Hart's maiden name?
See Comment section for the answers....

And, if you haven't yet, go check out her blogs...she has three that I am aware of...
The Ginger List
Vintage Fashion Book
...she knows folks who actually had meetings with Ginger! And she has mondo stories and pics concerning Ginger and other cool stuff! Truly a professional blogger!

...of course, I guess this sick story is at best 'coincidental' to the topic of Our Miss Ginger, but my mom actually told me about this (she wanted me to post about it, so...here you go, Ma...), and she was mad they used the term 'Ginger' to mean someone who is weak, and more specifically, redheaded folks who are 'profiled' as being weak, which is quite ignorant, IMHO... Well, Ginger was definitely a redhead, but was DEFINITELY not weak... nope.
Anyway, just an 'FYI' deal, which really again has little to do with VKM...
AAANNDDD, a big 'G-ology' welcome to our newest follower (#20!!!), 'Pink Champagne'!!! Neat 'handle'! ...Ginger was a 'tee-totaller', but if she would have drunk anything, it would have most definitely been pink champagne for 'Pinky'!!! Please feel free to comment on anything posted, as we like to 'jaw' on here!!! Glad to have you aboard!!!
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
