...Another thing in the back of my charred noggin is concerning the all-elusive 'Hat Check Girl', one of the few movies / shorts that the average Gingerologist (myself included) has not seen... it seems like I read somewhere on somebody's blog, or website, or e-mail, or papyrus scroll...that they have found a 'reel' copy of HCG, and is in the process of getting it 'transferred' into an electronic format....or, did I just dream this up? If the latter, I am in worse shape than I thought!
Anyway, if ANYONE has ANY info regarding this movie, please feel free to comment on it...I know Ginger's role is somewhat minimal, but... it's one of the last 'red' ones on my list...so, well, you understand... :-]
Finally, yes, I am still working on the 'This Day in Gingerology' feature...getting quite a few entries...honestly, still a few weeks away...or, maybe not. The great thing about this is that it does not have to be 'complete', EVER...in other words, it will be a 'perpetual' work in progress... so I should be able to get it started up soon...just going over her movies, and their release dates...some of the dates between TCM and IMDb are not correlating, so... part of the process... BTW, any info one may have would be greatly appreciated...exact dates are great, but 'estimates' are definitely accepted as well...
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
