AAAAND, in conjunction with this great movie, Gingerology is introducing a new feature, or at least a 'twist' on a regular practice around here... we will call it "SceneGinger" (there's a DVD board game with a similar title...maybe a few of y'all have played it...)
It works like this... I will note for y'all to watch a Ginger movie...so, WATCH KITTY FOYLE!!! Then, as soon as I can post, probably this time tomorrow night, unfortunately, but maybe sooner, I will post a QUITE extensive list of questions regarding scenes from the movie...some pretty easy, some not so much...the key is to watch CLOSELY.
ANOTHER AAAAND - 'Roberta' is also airing on TCM tomorrow, at 6:00 PM Eastern. While we are at it, 'Flying Down to Rio' will also be shown early Friday morning (2/12), at 4:00 AM Eastern.
Until then, Keep It Gingery!!!
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
