...and another thing... or two...

ok - still MORE miscellany to post...

First, Ron over at Fluffy Stuffin' posted a GREAT overview that discusses the 75th anniversary of the premiere of 'Top Hat'... awesome pics, too! Go check it out at: http://fluffystuffin.blogspot.com/

Second, LAST CALL for 'The First Traveling Saleslady', to air at 4:00 AM Eastern time... but as always, check your local listings... I think this has something to do with Clint Eastwood day on TCM, who makes one of his early appearances as Carol Channing's love interest (I know, somewhat implausable, eh?) ...again, it's a pretty cute movie, and the LAST RKO Radio movie EVER...so there you go.
FINALLY, Forgot to mention that the 'box set' coming out does NOT indicate a 'Blu-Ray' option, but the 'rumor' a while back was the next release of these films would be in Blu-Ray... not sure if that would be THAT big of a difference, but I am not an expert at those type of tings, as you may have well deduced by now... but I will keep checking for any updates regarding this, and if y'all hear something, be sure to post it...
ALSO FINALLY...I am working on putting a 'spot' somewhere on the blog for 'messages' like this, to keep from having to do full-bore posts - not that's there's anything wrong with that, but a 'message spot' would be a cool feature...
Hope y'all are having a quick week, as we hurl breathlessly towards Labor Day (yeah, it's time for a three-day weekend, y'all...) - stay safe, focused, and above all...
Keep It Gingery!!!


  1. 2 REALLY cute pictures! SG is IN LOVE with that first one its so...Sassy!

  2. also of interest....


  3. I love those pictures. The second one looks like she was caught in the middle of a fun moment :) And I agree SG, the first one does look so...sassy!

  4. ...honestly, I can't remmeber WHERE that first one came from... I just..HAVE it...(these things happen when you are a Gingerologist!) - yepyepyep it is QUITE sassy...HueyLikes! The SECOND pic was one that Lauren had - not sure exactly where it is from, but it is pretty cool... in fact, I am thinking of making a 'special post' on that pic, with something new for G-ology...stay tuned!

    Ron - man, ANOTHER cool article on Top Hat! I am REALLY feeling pretty inadequate in the blogging arena when these posts are out there! Let's see - the next one to have an 'anniversary' will be 'Follow the Fleet'...heck, might get my ma to write that one - I swear, she is watching that one EVERY time I go over to her house to cut grass or whatever... she's GOTTA know it backwards and forwards! She's a big 'Top hat' fan, as well as Gay Divorcee... she ISN'T as big on Swing Time, for whatever reason... kinda weird... I think the music is a big draw for her in them...

    AND, 'Kitty' is looking at her 70th anniversary in December, so I will be trying to get a 'megapost' set up for that one...already have some pretty good stuff for it...

    ok - y'all keep it Gingery, y'hear?

  5. Great pics, Huey. I hadn't seen the first one. Is that its full size or did you resize it? I'm going to send it to Return, and I know he'll ask.

    Also, great post by Ron on Top Hat as well as the one he referenced in his comment.

  6. Lady F: Really not sure where it came from... you know, I MAY have scanned that one in from a book... it's impossible to keep up with all of these pics (a nice problem to have to be sure!) But is IS a killer pic...
    Hope you are having a great Labor Day! All of y'all!


Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!

...I TRULY appreciate these, and the kind words regarding this blog...thanks for all the inspiration I have drawn from each of your blog sites, which are all awesome in their unique ways!!!
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
