...BIG news for ALL Classic Movie fans...
ALSO, catch the last line, which notes that FOX is believed to be doing the same early in 2011... True Gingerologists already know where I am heading with this...
...that's right; the epic search for 'Hat Check Girl' may be nearing its end!!! Hopefully Fox will dig a good copy up and release it... I just thumbed thru the 'Films of GR' book, and the 'general review' notes that "The pre-code script gave Ginger a marvelous opportunity to demonstrate what she could do with apt wisecracks and risqué situations...her glib Jessie King became the first of many worldly-wise girlfriend roles that would hold her in good stead until stardom came along."
...yep, we need to be unearthing this one in short order, you fine feathered friends from FOX!!! ...and while y'all are at it, a clean copy of 'Broadway Bad' (Ginger AND Joan Blondell) is sorely needed, as well... :-]
KIG in GingerFall, Y'all!!!
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
