Which 'screen cap' used to this point in the GingerFilm reviews is your fave? Now, there's no such thing as a bad Ginger pic, right? But, a lot of these early films were just so far gone, quality-wise, it was nigh to impossible to get a decent cap... but, there WERE a lot of AWESOME ones so far, and these are my 'picks' to this point:
Follow The Leader
Gold Diggers of 1933
Flying Down to Rio
Chance at Heaven
...well, that's the lineup...pretty dang tough - as soon as I settle on one, I look at another, and say, "Hey, that's one's awesome, too!!!" This is NOT to 'toot my own horn', as far as my 'technical prowess' goes...it's just that Ginger is a pretty impossible subject to mess up!!!
Well, off to the polls with you...vote early and often... I've made it so you can vote for multiple ones, just to 'beef up' the results a bit...
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
