Review of The Major and the Minor from Movies Unlimited
Also, thanks to Katherine (a.k.a. Fred and Ginger Mad, and my fellow Gingerologist who appeared in Independence on 7/16/11), for informing me of what sounds like a pretty killer event in Boston, and later in NYC, which is entitled "The Ginger Rogers Century Exhibition", starting on October 24, 2011... here's the bodacious link to THAT:
Ginger Rogers Century Exhibition
And finally, just a programming note...the Professional Sweetheart review is pending...will jump on it probably tonight... I was just thinking how that role is really not that suited to Ginger, in the sense that the character is wanting to go out boozing and carousing... "sin and suffer", as it were...not really what Ginger was into in real life. But of course she does a killer job of the role...although, something tells me that Jean Harlow would have been pretty awesome in it as well...which kinda led me to believe that RKO may have been trying to turn Ginger into their version of Harlow... and not that I am saying Harlow was a 'boozer and carouser', as in fact, she was also a Christian Scientist, born in KC in March 1911...it is pretty weird about their 'correlation'...a pretty cool future post topic.
Oh yeah, before I forget, here's just a question in GENERAL for y'all out there...
This is a question I've wanted to kick out there forever, but somehow keep forgetting it... hopefully y'all will catch it and reply!!! Actually, I also just want to see how many folks are out there active as well...it's been a bit...silent on the classic movie blogosphere lately... well, probably because school is in session, for better or worse...
Well, that's about all I have for now... hope y'all are having fun out there, and, until we re-convene...
