...A few 'quick hits'...
Hi, all - just a few things...first - not really sure where the pic above is from, but it's always been a fave... and I just can't post without at least ONE GingerPic...so...there ya go.
FIRST - The Warner Archives are having a sale for 'Mother's Day' themed movies...of course, "Bachelor Mother" is among them - and they are knocking off 25% on them, making them $14.95 each...pretty good deal if you haven't gotten this one yet - there are quite a few others on the 'list'... see the link (She is on the last row of the first page of the 'Mom Movies'):
SECOND - The new movie "Water for Elephants", with Reese Witherspoon, has really got me thinking that she would be a pretty dang good candidate to play Ginger in that movie about Ginger's life that we all REALLY would like to see happen, but won't because the Astaire Estate won't let Fred be depicted in any new movies...but maybe one day... ANYWAY, Reese is in a lot of what looks like 20's-30's era costumes in this movie, and her hairstyles definitely conjure up Miss Rogers, to me, anyway...and it's a bit ironic that Reese would probably be tapped as 'most-Ginger-like' amongst today's actresses, anyway, in terms of her relative lack of 'issues (as far as I can tell, anyway...). I figure lots of y'all will probably see this movie, so tell me what you think.
THIRD - For those of you who have FOX Movie Channel (hey - I just discovered I have it on my digital box...pretty cool...), they are airing "Roxie Hart" on Monday, April 25, which is, of course, the day Ginger left us 16 years ago... this will be a good one to watch to 'celebrate' her life...of course, we pretty much do that all the time anyway, right? :-)
OK, well, that's about it for now - I will post 'info' (cause that's all I got...) on 'Hat Check Girl' in a day or two.
I hope everyone out there is having a Great Good Friday...and yes, a nice Earth Day as well.. :-]
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
